University building closed due to "suspicious package"

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A building at Eastern Illinois University was evacuated on Thursday after someone discovered a "suspicious package" but campus activities were returning to normal, a school official said.

"Someone received what they considered a suspicious package and reported it. The building was evacuated. And investigators were called to look the situation over," said university spokeswoman Vicki Woodard.

Woodward said the package was found in the morning in the Human Services Building, which houses the university's health services.

She had no other details about the package but said "things are returning to normal."

Eastern Illinois University is located in Charleston, about 185 southwest of Chicago, with a student population of about 11,600 students.
