After viral protests rocked the Evergreen State College campus last week, faculty cancelled classes Monday for the third day in a row following an “external threat.”
The school mentioned “new external threat information received over the weekend” in a press release obtained by The Olympian, so Monday’s closure differs from the threat that closed the campus Thursday and Friday.
Student protesters at Evergreen State College posted this photo to social media over the weekend:
“Even though we had planned to be back in class on Monday, it’s important to give law enforcement an opportunity to evaluate their new information,” said Sandra Kaiser, Evergreen’s vice president for college relations, in a statement received by The Olympian.
Professor Bret Weinstein, whose protest of the Day of Absence on which whites were told to stay off campus, took the following picture of barricades erected when the campus closed Thursday.
