In New York City, Columbia University in New York City, which has 31,000 students, evacuated three buildings after it received bomb threats, the Columbia Spectator student newspaper reported. The university issued a series of tweets advising that the New York Police Department was investigating. The final tweet said that the threats were deemed "not credible" by the police and that the buildings had been cleared for reoccupancy.

 

Meanwhile, in a series of tweets, Cornell University in Ithaca told students, staff and visitors to immediately leave the law school, Goldwin Smith, Upson Hall and Kennedy Hall and to avoid central campus after local police received a call about bombs being put in those buildings.

 

On Friday (November 5), Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, also an Ivy League school, received bomb threats that were later found not to be credible.
