Mississippi State University has returned to normal operations after “an anonymous suspicious device threat” in one of the residence halls Friday night.

Sid Salter, the university’s vice president of strategic communications, provided the update just before 9 p.m.

At 6:24 p.m., the threat was communicated to MSU Police via text message. Out of caution, officials cleared Sessums, Hull, and Nunnelee halls before sweeping the buildings with canines. No suspicious device was found, and no injuries were reported.

Mississippi State recently welcomed students back to campus with the largest freshman class in school history. Total enrollment is set to surpass 23,000 for the fall 2023 semester.
