The University of Louisiana at Lafayette canceled classes and events on Wednesday after a bomb threat on campus, school officials said.
No explosives were found, the school said, but the threat forced students to evacuate, shut down streets on the campus and canceled orientation activities as police teams swept the campus.
Authorities from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Louisiana State Police, the Lafayette police force and the campus police department all responded to the threat, according to the school. An investigation is ongoing.
The Lafayette campus is located about 60 miles west of Baton Rouge, La. School officials said the campus should be fully open on Thursday.
