Oregon student expelled over threat seeks return

A Portland State University graduate student expelled after allegedly threatening violence against a faculty member wants to return to the university.

Henry Liu has filed for an administrative review of his expulsion. A hearing is set for Aug. 3.

The university banned Liu from campus this spring after a classmate reported to police that the graduate student was upset with a professor and talked about guns in the same conversation. Police found four unloaded guns in Liu's apartment.

Though he was never charged with a crime, the university expelled Liu last month for furnishing misleading information and being a possible safety threat.

The 33-year-old Liu told The Oregonian newspaper he did not threaten a faculty member, and was expelled based on hearsay.
