So basically, this is what my university had been dealing with the past two weeks. As of writing this entry, we've had another alert that contained three, count 'em, T H R E E bomb threats for different building,
so technically the count is up to 16.
EDIT: JUST GOT ANOTHER MESSAGE FOR TWO MORE, SO MAKE THAT 18 :|
There's a reward being offered for whoever unveils the culprit but like...each bomb threat has cancelled and disrupted COUNTLESS classes and tests. For each threat that the Cathedral of Learning
gets, it takes at least two hours to re-open the building because the Cathedral has 40 floors and they carefully check them all. And, considering the size of the Cathedral, you can bet that at any day during the school week, it contains the most on-going classes.
I, personally, have had 6 classes disrupted/cancelled due to bomb threats, which is ridiculous. And what has the University done about it? So far; nothing
. I've been hearing rumors about them trying to change finals somehow, but at this point, I want to make it through a week without missing a class.
And to be quite honest, I would also like to not be afraid of my campus or the Cathedral(where I have 5/6 of my classes). It's gotten to the point where I literally go to campus for class and then come right back to my apartment. Which is bad because I've been putting off research I need to do for a paper and research I need to do for my Directed Research this semester simply because I don't feel safe on campus.
It's just ridiculous and I had to get out my thoughts somewhere where I didn't feel silly or dumb for thinking this way ;(
