Evergreen State College closed for several days at the beginning of June as protests over racial issues turned violent.
Reports emerged of students wielding “sticks and bats” and causing $10,000 of property damage. A threat to “execute as many people on that campus as I can get ahold of” was called into emergency operators.
The school has since reopened, but has faced harsh criticism in light of the incident. A state lawmaker introduced a bill to pull funding from the Washington state-based public college.
