Louisiana State University's campus was evacuated today after the school received a bomb threat, the AP reports. The school's website urged the roughly 30,000 students, professors and miscellaneous staff on site to leave "as calmly and quickly as possible." Bomb technicians are searching the campus. Louisiana State Police say they're trying to determine if the threat has any connection to threats that last week emptied campuses in Texas, North Dakota, and Ohio. (Read more bomb threat stories.)
