He also said that there was no need for alarm, and that all of the messages were anonymous and generic in nature.

p. Sadler said that in the future, students would be informed of credible threats through the College’s new emergency notification system. He asked students who received suspicious e-mails and messages to contact campus police at 221-4596.
