The stereotypical bomb is nonexistent. It can be constructed to look like almost anything. Most are homemade, limited only to the imagination of, and resources available to, the bomber. They can be placed or delivered in any number of ways with one common denominator—designed or intended to explode.
If you receive a bomb threat or see a suspicious package anywhere at Western Michigan University, report it immediately to the Department of Public Safety at (269) 387-5555 or 911 from a campus phone.
