Harvard Business School Evacuated After Bomb Threat

The timing is especially odd, considering school is no longer in session

Harvard is currently evacuating buildings on the Harvard Business School campus due to a received bomb threat. It is currently unclear who made the threat, and by what medium.

The following buildings have been evacuated:

Morgan Hall, Esteves Hall, Aldrich Hall, Chao Center, Tata Hall, Hawes Hall and Batten Hall.

Students were notified of the threat by an email from Steven Catalano, Special Advisor to the Chief of Police, and member of the Harvard University Police Department.

This most recent threat follows another threat in November of last year, which was made on the Harvard University campus. After a lengthy investigation no perpetrators were found.

The Business School is located roughly half a mile away from the College, and is separated by the Charles River.

The timing of this threat is especially odd considering that the school is no longer in session, as the semester ended over one week ago. First year students are, however, in finals and commencement begins in a week.
