Threat Closes Evergreen State College Amid High Race Tensions

Evergreen State College closed on Thursday after a “threat of violence."

The threat comes after a multicultural group suggested white people leave for a “day of absence,” which they claimed was meant to be a non-racist effort.

However, a campus spokesman said there was no clear connection between the day of absence and the threat made Thursday. College officials did not release specific information about Thursday's threat. 

The liberal school’s campus is located off Evergreen Parkway in Olympia. Evergreen posted the following on its website: “In response to a direct threat to campus safety, the college is closing immediately for the day. All are asked to leave campus or return to residence halls for instructions.”
