Threats cancel classes at Kean University

Officials at Kean University canceled evening classes Tuesday after campus police received two phone threats.

Campus officials say the threats only affected academic buildings and the library. Commuter students were sent home after classes were canceled. According to campus officials, the threats did not affect the dormitories and dorm students were free to leave the buildings.

Students say they saw police officers and K-9 units checking on the Union Township campus after the cancellations.

The university sent out text messages and e-mails to alert students to the situation.
