Valdosta - All's clear at a building on the campus of VSU that was evacuated and closed this morning because of a bomb threat.

A student found a written bomb threat in a classroom at the South Georgia College Entry Program building at the University Center South around 9:30 Wednesday morning.

It also referenced the Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University shootings.

Police say that although this is the fifth bomb threat on campus this academic year, they treat each one seriously. 

"The threat that we had today we determined to be on a low threat level but we responded the same way we would on a high threat level. We want to make sure all of our students are safe," says Ann Farmer, Assistant Director of the VSU Police.

Classes resumed at 2:00 PM Wednesday.

Police say the letter has been sent to the GBI to try and determine who was responsible.
