The Columbian

OLYMPIA – The Evergreen State College is reopening Saturday, two days after someone called in a threat.

The college said on its website Friday that the campus in Olympia would return to regular operations with weekend classes and activities.

Law enforcement officials were continuing to investigate a threat that was called in Thursday morning to Thurston County Communications 911.

The Olympian reports that the caller said he was on his way to the college with a weapon and planned to kill people. Officials said police and a campus search determined no one was posing a threat.
