Hiram College officials have given the "all clear" and reopened the northeast Ohio school after a sweep found nothing suspicious following a bomb threat hours earlier.
College spokesman Tom Ford said Friday evening the campus community has been alerted that the campus is safe and is open again.
The college received an emailed bomb threat about 4 p.m. and ordered everyone on campus to evacuate. Ford said safety teams with bomb-sniffing dogs checked "room by room, building by building."
Bomb threats also caused evacuations Friday at campuses in Texas and North Dakota. Ford said he knows of no connection among the three evacuations.
