Her visit and acknowledgement of the threat on social media has been received by the UH community.
“President Khator’s visit to sorority houses was to reassure students … Students are always her priority, and I applaud her leadership,” Executive Director of Media Relations Richard Bonnin said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.
Security around campus, specifically Bayou Oaks, has been upped to 24-hour patrols after rumors of gang activity against sororities arose Sunday night.
