“Although I felt like it probably wasn’t true I still was shocked that even threats of this kind could happen on campus. It’s really scary to think that someone would do that or even find it amazing to make threats about it,” said Lyle Seethaler-American student.

 “It was really scary at first since I was working in the building when it happened. It led me to believe that most of the weapons being used against the citizens are psychological rather than biological since it succeeded in stirring up fear,” said Ezekiel Lim-Filipino student.

 “I was fearful for my friends who happen to live right next to the Pitt Union. Since I live in SQ Hill, I wasn’t really sure what was going on until I turned on the news. I thought for sure something was going to happen once I heard the threats. I am so relieved that all my friends were safe after this whole ordeal. Tighter security needs to be instated,”said Lauren Korn- Israeli-American student.

 “I wasn’t scared at the beginning since I thought it was a fire alarm but when I heard it was a biological bomb threat, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve never been through something like this before, so it is difficult for me to believe it is really happening,” said Erendira Garcia- Mexican student

 “I am appalled to think that individuals think so lightly of our current situation. It is sad to know how our world is being turned upside down and how complacent we all are,” Kevin Chung- Korean student.

 “I was greatly concerned and extremely frightened when I found out. My first thought was who would do this? Is it someone who goes to Pitt? Then I realized it was probably an immature college student trying to be funny or show off. As an RA, I told my residents to remain calm, that I would be the first to know if Lothrop was to be evacuated and that I would keep them posted,”said Anna Beth Kaminsky- Polish-Russian student.
