A bomb threat on the Texas A&M campus forced an evacuation.
Cars, back to back, in traffic trying to leave campus ... as Police make
their way to the scene.
"All of the sudden students just flooded out of the rooms and we didn't know what was happening," said Holly Stone, A&M student.
Texas A&M University sent out a Code Maroon, emergency messages for everyone to leave including students and employees.
Breanna Taylor was along the thousands of students walking off campus to safety.
"We had to walk all the way from south side to and just has to walk all the way to Northgate which is on the opposite side," said Taylor.
Initially most students took this as a prank, but freshman Holly Stone thought this could be the real deal.
"I'm not going to lie I was a little more panicked than other people", said Stone.
Classes were cancelled, but not for everyone...
"A professor brought his class outside because they were not through with class apparently," said Stone.
Students were told to leave campus south or north away from the university on foot.
" I can't get my car, I'm a little upset about it," said Stone.
Students are now left to wait.
"My worry is one of these days it's not going to be just a threat and we're not going to take it seriously," said Stone.
Hoax or not the good thing is everyone is safe.
