OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Evergreen State College says the college will reopen Saturday, two days after someone called in a threat.

The college said on its website Friday that the campus in Olympia would return to regular operations on Saturday with weekend classes and activities.


Law enforcement officials were continuing to investigate a threat that was called in to Thurston County Communications 911 Thursday morning.

The Olympian reports (https://goo.gl/Nb8rX4 ) the person on the call said he was on his way to the college with a weapon and planned to kill people. Officials said extra law enforcement presence and a search of campus buildings determined no one was actively posing a threat.

The threat follows a recent series of protests at Evergreen that drew national attention to student allegations of racism on the progressive campus.

Officials say they don’t know if the threat was related events at the college.
