The FBI and SIUC Police are investigating after a threat was received through the mail around midnight last (Tuesday) night.
Authorities say they don’t consider the threat to be credible, but a campus safety alert was issued to students, faculty and staff this morning.
SIUC Spokesman Rod Sievers says the alert was issued as a precaution, but says people should go about their regular business.
“The credibility of this threat is in doubt, the authorities are actively pursuing their investigation. And if anything else is determined to warrant further action, certainly that would be relayed to the campus community.”
