NEW CONCORD, Ohio - Activity has resumed at Muskingum University after a bomb threat forced the evacuation of its campus and residence halls.
A spokeswoman for Muskingum University says the school reopened at 6:30 a.m. Friday. Janice Tucker McCloud says students, staff and faculty were instructed to leave after the university received an anonymous phone call Thursday afternoon that a bomb was located at the school.
According to the university's website, roughly 1,700 undergraduate students and 1,400 graduate students attend the school in New Concord, on the eastern edge of Muskingum County.
Those responding included the Muskingum University Police, the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office, Muskingum County EMA and the New Concord Police and Fire Departments.
All activities on campus were canceled Thursday afternoon and evening, while officials searched for the reported bomb. After a thorough search of the campus, officials say no bomb was found.
The investigation continues into the identity of the caller.
