Campus Where Jewish Professor Was Targeted Closed Again After Telephone Threat

Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington remained closed on Friday, after a 911 call a day earlier from an individual who claimed to be armed and on his way to campus.

The school has been the focus of widespread media attention in recent days, since a biology professor, Bret Weinstein, went public with complaints that he had been targeted by a “campus mob” of protesters. Harshly negative press coverage from Fox News and Breitbart, among other outlets, followed.

In a statement on its website, the school said that an anonymous caller to an area 911 line had claimed to be “armed and en route to Evergreen’s Olympia campus.”

The school closed Thursday and remained closed Friday. A notice on the college’s website alerts that campus operations are suspended.
