A Butler County Community College satellite campus will close on the first day of final exams next week because of threats found written in a men's bathroom stall.

College officials said the threats were found Tuesday, April 29, at the school's Lawrence Crossing facility in Union Township, Lawrence County.

The facility was closed for the rest of that day the threats were found, even though the threats indicate the bombing or shooting will occur next Tuesday, May 6.

School spokeswoman Susan Changnon says students must contact professors about where and when to take exams scheduled for that day.

Changnon says the FBI advised the school to either beef up security or close for the day.
