COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State University has lifted the evacuation of a student activity center on campus after no explosives were found in an unattended backpack found outside the facility.
The university issued a statement Tuesday evening saying normal operations are being resumed at the Ohio Union on the Columbus campus. The facility had been evacuated for about an hour as police investigated the backpack.
The school didn't say how many people were evacuated or exactly where the backpack was found. The discovery came as authorities urged heightened awareness of anything suspicious in the aftermath of deadly bombings near the Boston Marathon finish line.
The Ohio Union is used by many student organizations and includes food venues and event spaces. It sits along High Street, a busy road north of downtown Columbus.
