    Residential students on campus were temporarily relocated to a secure facility, where they were provided with food and drinks. All non-essential employees were instructed to leave campus.

    The campus reopened around 5 p.m. after a check of buildings by public safety personnel.

    The school said the campus will operate as normal on Thursday, and the upcoming orientation and move-in schedule remains unchanged.
