Wildfires may be closing schools all over Southern California (UC-San Diego, San Diego State University, and Pepperdine University have shut down), but a bomb threat in the Midwest brought midterms to a screeching halt at the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Daily reports. The school canceled class late Tuesday, and several buildings were searched and evacuated after an E-mail stating no specific time and a handful of possible locations was sent to a university account. That E-mail was originally sent around 9:45 a.m., but it wasn't discovered by university personnel until 3:45 p.m. Luckily for the school, no bomb was found.
