CHICAGO — After threats of "explosions" shut down DeVry University's Chicago campuses Monday, the school announced it would reopen on Tuesday.
"All Chicago-area DeVry University and Chamberlain College of Nursing locations will be open" Tuesday, said Ernie Gibble, a spokesman for the school.
DeVry closed its campuses and canceled classes Monday after two officials at its campus in suburban Addison received emails "suggesting there would be several explosions set off at unspecified locations throughout the day," Gibble said in an email.
The Chicago-area campuses were shut down as a "precautionary measure," Gibble said, and each of the campuses was inspected for any suspicious materials by bomb-sniffing dogs.
After nothing was found, officials made the decision to re-open the campuses Tuesday.
Initially, both the university and Chicago police were tight-lipped about the nature of the threat — calling it only a "security issue" — though a police spokesman did confirm the department was working with the school to investigate the matter.
