No, no, not a riot or anything. This:
After a racist thread on social media sparked outrage on a quiet Washington state campus, college officials sent students home a day early for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Western Washington University sent out an alert cancelling classes and an email to students just after 6 a.m. Tuesday from President Bruce Shepard. It is unknown if the people who posted the threats are students at the state university in Bellingham, but the posts were made from a phone located within 10 miles of campus, Shepard said. More.

Reality check: How many of these home-early, feeling-scared students are STEM undergrads babysitting an experiment? Or finagling precious time on a really powerful computer to run some sims? Or observation time at a telescope?
The main thing to see here is that most of them are probably not doing anything that would be missed, now or ever. Otherwise, they would likely tough it out.
Harvard Law School hate crime a probable hoax? Like so many others?
