Evergreen State College in Washington state was abruptly evacuated and closed due to a ‘direct threat’ Thursday.

“In response to a direct threat to campus safety, the college is closing immediately for the day,” the college said in an alert to students and staff. “All are asked to leave campus or return to residence halls for instructions.”

No further details were given.

The school has been the scene of racial tensions lately. Leftist students have alleged racism from administrators and demanded all white people leave the campus for a “non-racist day of absence.”

Below is a video of a demonstration earlier this week that went viral.
