CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - State police say that all Oregon State University dorms have been checked and deemed safe for students after a telephoned bomb threat prompted the evacuation of the Corvallis school’s campus residence halls.

Police said in a statement Thursday night that all students were being allowed to return to their rooms.

A phone message received Thursday evening indicated that a bomb had been placed in an unspecified residence hall.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports that the dorms were evacuated as a precaution. University spokesman Steve Clark said state police were checking the school’s 11 residence halls for any explosives.
