CORVALLIS, Ore. - Following a threat of violence via multiple tweets, students at Oregon State University are feeling frustrated and disturbed by the threats, but overall they feel safe.
"I went and tried to see if I could find what the tweets actually were. And it was pretty disturbing what was actually there," said Zachary Morello, a freshman at OSU.
Staff with OSU said upon learning about the threats, they immediately warned students and staff to take the proper measures for their own safety. And police arrested the man, 22-year-old Christopher Strahan, within a day.

Students said they were happy with the measures taken by both administration and authorities. They said the efficient response and outreach made them feel at ease in a situation where they naturally felt scared.
Students said they were frustrated by the fact that things like this keep happening, and they don't see it changing anytime soon.
"But I feel like there's really nothing going to be done about it. I don't think that our country is going to do much about it and that's really upsetting to me," said Emily Sackinger, a graduate student at OSU.
