Northeastern University is back to normal Friday morning, after a bomb threat Thursday night sparked a shelter-in-place order to go into effect.

The bomb threat was called into Northeastern just nine days after a package exploded on campus. The Boston Police Department said this latest threat was called in just after 10:30 Thursday night.

Police asked people to stay away from the Curry Student Center, as well as Snell Quad. A shelter-in-place was put into effect for a time, but was eventually lifted. The all clear was given early Friday morning, after a response from BPD's bomb squad.

A Northeastern University employee was left with minor injuries last week, when an over-pressurized case delivered to the school exploded, prompting a large police presence. That man has since become the subject of an investigation after sources told NBC10 Boston it was being investigated as a possible hoax.

Students who spoke with NBC10 Boston Friday said they feel safe on campus, but would live more information when something happens.

"I think it’s good to say stay away be careful. It would be nice to have a reason for what’s happening," one student said.

There's still no word on who may have called in this latest threat to Northeastern University.
