College of Charleston adjusts class schedules amid bomb threats

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - College of Charleston officials have canceled a number of classes Tuesday as authorities continue to investigate a bomb threat on the campus.

Effective immediately, and through 5 p.m., all classes are canceled in the following College of Charleston buildings, which have been closed:

  • Beatty Center
  • JC Long Building
  • Tate Center
  • School of Education, Health, and Human Performance Building (Wentworth St.)
  • Thaddeus Street Education Center
  • Craig Hall

College officials say they anticipate the six buildings to reopen before 5 p.m. If there is any delay, students will be notified by email and a Cougar Alert.

All classes on campus in other buildings will be held as scheduled, and  "the ordinary business of the College of Charleston should continue in all other buildings."

"Students should confer with faculty to see how lost class time will be made up," a release from CofC President Glenn McConnell states. "Faculty should accommodate reasonable requests from students who have had their days disrupted by the events surrounding this bomb threat."
