Spanish bombs

May 7, 2007

My uni is the quite frankly the worst uni in Sydney, but it made the news today. (obviously) not because of some academic merit, but because some feral westie decided to make a bomb threat make “verbal threats” to students in the sorry excuse for a cafe our campus has. (At this point i should probably point out that my uni is in the equivalent of stabbington)
Why do all the good things happen on the day i’m not there?

A university campus has been shut down in Sydney’s west after a man made threats to students at its cafe.

University of Western Sydney vice-chancellor Janet Reid said the man, in his early 20s, was verbally abusive to some students at the campus cafe about 11am.

Professor Reid said she believed the man “did not behave like a student in the course of his study”.

“His appearance and the way he was speaking was very aggressive,” she said.

Ms Reid said students described the man as having short black hair with some parts bleached blond.

He had a poor complexion and was about 170 centimetres tall.

She said he drove off the campus in a white XD Ford Falcon sedan after making the threats.

The vice chancellor was unable to confirm how many students were evacuated from the campus, but said that it was one of UWS’s smaller campuses and that many of the students studying there had their own cars.

The university has closed the campus for the day. It said that police and security officers were patrolling the nearby Kingswood campus as an added precaution.

In a statement, the university said it was working closely with the NSW Police and expected classes to resume tomorrow.

It said the university and the police would maintain a heightened security presence on both campuses for the next few days.

As far as i can tell, he hasn’t been found/caught yet, but i can’t say i’m especially worried cos i could take him easy.
I wouldn’t mind if uni was shut down tomorrow too, although it would suck if i travel the two hours out there only to find it’s shut and i have to go home again.

  3. this is what we got sent in our student emails:

    At approximately 11.00 am this morning an anonymous threat was made by a
    male visitor to Werrington South Campus to the safety and well being of
    staff and students on that campus.

    The person is described a male Caucasian, 5 feet 7 inches in his early
    20s with short black hair which is bleached in part blonde, bad acne and
    was driving a white XD Ford Falcon sedan. If you observe someone fitting
    this description do not approach them. Please contact Security
    immediately on Extension 2300 or 47360300.

    While he was observed driving away from the campus the Vice-Chancellor
    has decided, that in the interests of our staff and students, all staff
    and students should leave the campus. Police and UWS Security are
    currently managing the situation at the campus.

    A notice will be posted on the UWS Home page about arrangements for
    tomorrow. You may also wish to contact the Call Centre on 1800 657 622
    after 3.00 pm to find further information about access to the Campus.

    We will keep you informed by email as soon as there more information

  5. we got a talk at school yesterday warning about the dangers of myspace. Not that it wouldn’t work if you tried or you will be subject to alot of advertising or someone will find your password and you’ll advertise myer giftcards and free ringtones, but that you need to know what to do if someone starts ‘cyber-bullying’ you.

    our teacher didnt know anything and we told him about myspace.
