Earlier today Belmont’s Campus Security was alerted to a possible bomb threat on campus, and three residence halls and two academic buildings were evacuated by security officers and Belmont staff. Belmont followed its established protocol–in consultation with Metro Police–to assess this threat and secure the campus. We take seriously every comment or action that could affect the safety of Belmont students, faculty and staff and took all precautionary measures to protect our community.
Following a full investigation by campus officials and Metro Police, all of the evacuated buildings have now been cleared to re-open. All exams have continued, though ones originally scheduled for an evacuated building will proceed in the new locations this evening.
