UPDATE: Within an hour of UTSA confirming that the John Peace Library on campus had been evacuated so that police could investigate a bomb threat, UTSA announced that the library had been reopened and that students were allowed back in.
Several students complained on social media that the school only let students know about the threat shortly after it was called off.
UTSA got me paying all this money but can't send out a simple text when there's a bomb threat— Champagne Mami (@cubanchick04) April 18, 2017
UTSA tweets "all is good" to clear a bomb threat in the same minute that they send the emergency text to students. We pay for this......— Tay (@TayValdespino) April 18, 2017
