According to the school’s website, a “Code Maroon” warning has been issued and all classes are cancelled.

“The University has received a campus-wide bomb threat. We are asking all students, faculty, and staff to evacuate campus as quickly and as safely as possible by foot,” A&M said on its “emergency” Web page. “Do not use a vehicle at this time. This evacuation is effective immediately until further notice.”

Students have been asked to continue checking that “emergency” Web page for more updates and further information.
