“We don’t know anything. All we heard was a suspicious package. We’ve been here about 10 minutes.,” said Jordan Stevenson, assistant director of admissions, recruitment. “We are more worried about work unfortunately.”

Student Ashley Jones said the evacuation was more of a disruption than anything else.

“I came around the corner and I was like ahh what happened? I just came here because I have to go to class,” she said. “My teacher was like there’s someone every year who does this because they don’t want to take a test.”
