    You're welcome. Hopefully it will turn out to be nothing. My nephew goes there too.

    Rumors are that a middle-eastern man with an accent called in a bomb threat.

    The University of Texas evacuated all of its campus buildings today after a man claiming to be affiliated with Al Qaeda called in a bomb threat, according to a message sent to students by university officials.

    Including North Dakota State U now:

    A bomb threat has prompted a complete evacuation Friday morning of North Dakota State University in Fargo, campus police announced in an emergency alert.

    "NDSU is requiring all employees and students to leave campus by 10:15 a.m.," the alert reads. "This includes residence hall students, who, if necessary, should walk to locations off campus."

    The alert added that the evacuation also covers the school's downtown buildings and agricultural facilities.

    The alert gave no details about the bomb threat, adding that more information would be released later.

    GF says she will call me as soon as they text the all clear...and she hasn't texted or called yet.

    However, FOX news is reporting the window of the threat has passed...

    A follow-up Tweet from the school indicated police were going building-to-building to look for any suspicious devices. A decision on afternoon classes and activities had not been reached. The next update was expected to be issued at 10:45 a.m.

    The university's initial warning about the incident read, "Evacuation due to threats on campus. Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible. More information to come."

    UT released this official statement to the media:

    "At 8:35 a.m. the university received a call from a male with a middle eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus. He said he was with Al Qaeda and these bombs would go off in 90 minutes. President Powers was notified and it was decided to evacuate all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution."
