University President David P. Roselle was sent an e-mail message a little after 9 p.m., Monday, Sept. 22, informing him that an explosive device was located somewhere in the building and that it would detonate before midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 24.
A bomb technician, accompanied by other UD police officers, made a complete search of the building from late night into early morning. No devices were found. UD officers are continuing to keep the building under surveillance, and the matter is under active investigation.
Individuals who work in Hullihen Hall were informed of the threat Tuesday morning.
"We have taken every safety precaution, and our offices are working largely as they usually do," Roselle said.
The president expressed concern for the individual or individuals who made the threat, adding, "Such persons are obviously in need of help, and if they have the courage to come forward, we can help them."
