Texas A&M University in Texarkana closed its campus today after an Eagle Alert was issued reporting an emergency situation around 2 p.m.

In an official press release released this afternoon, the university stated that the closure was part of the school’s “ongoing efforts to assure the safety of our campus community.”

Campus security, the TAMUT Emergency Response Team, and representatives from both local law enforcement and fire departments took part in the drill. The university will open at 4:30 p.m. and classes will resume as scheduled.


At 4:11 p.m., TAMUT officials announced that there was in fact no bomb threat, but that the closure had been due to a practice drill. The evacuation, however, had been real.


At 3:35 p.m. the school confirmed that the campus was still closed, but cited that the reason for the closing was a bomb threat.


The following alert was posted on the school’s Facebook page.
