Princeton University evacuates campus after bomb threat

"This is NOT a test. There has been a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings," read one of the school's tweets.

 Princeton University evacuated its campus on Tuesday after receiving a bomb threat to multiple buildings on its sprawling New Jersey property, according to the school's Twitter page.

Those with cars were told to leave the campus, and those without cars were directed by police to evacuation sites, the school said.

"This is NOT a test. There has been a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings," said one of the school's tweets at about 10:30 a.m.

The threat came a week after Princeton's commencement, at a time when the university's population is down sharply from the regular school year.

A spokesman for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said the governor was not in Princeton, which is home to the executive mansion, Drumthwacket.

Princeton, an Ivy League university 42 miles northeast of Philadelphia and 51 miles southwest of New York City, takes its name from the New Jersey town where it has been located for more than a century.

Students interviewed by Reuters said dozens of people could be seen leaving the school's residential buildings and campus cafes, which were crowded with students on laptops.

Local police referred all questions to the university. The school said it was updating the campus community through its Twitter account and Web page.Reuters

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
