President Flanagan issued an email to students about an investigation of a handwritten note, with a threatening message that was found in Schroeder Hall bathroom, today.
Police consider the threat to be at a low-level.
Classes are not cancelled in Schroeder Hall; however ISU Police and security teams, along with trained dogs, will be making random sweeps through the building.
Also, access to Schroeder Hall will once again be limited until further notice.
Backpacks, briefcases, bags and purses will once again be searched before entering the building, Flanagan advised leaving extra time to get to your classes.
President Flanagan encourages students and faculty to only bring these items if necessary to help keep lines at a minimum.
He also encourages students and faculty to bring water with you due to the excessive heat, as lines to get into Schroeder Hall will be primarily outdoors.
President Flanagan wants to ensure the safety of students and staff.
The email from Flanagan did not describe what the threat was, but it is the second threatening note found in a Schroeder Hall bathroom this year.
