Eastern Ohio college evacuates after bomb threat



Published: Thu, November 21, 2013 @ 4:30 p.m.

NEW CONCORD, Ohio (AP) — A university in eastern Ohio is evacuating its campus after it received an anonymous phone call that a bomb was located at the school.

A spokeswoman for Muskingum University said in an email today that students, staff and faculty have been instructed to leave the campus in New Concord, which is about 70 miles east of Columbus.

Spokeswoman Janice Tucker McCloud says the school is working with university police and the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office, along with other local authorities.

According to the school’s website, about 1,700 undergraduate students and 1,400 graduate students attend the school. Most undergraduate students live on campus.

The university says its men’s basketball game against Case Western Reserve University and women’s basketball game at Kenyon College have been postponed because of the evacuation.
