HOUSTON (AP) — Houston's University of St. Thomas is reopening after bomb threats closed its campus most of the day.

School officials say Houston police and university security people have swept and cleared all buildings. Evening classes and all events for later in the day are being held as scheduled.

The university's website first informed students just after 8:30 a.m. Thursday that classes scheduled for the library would be relocated due to the bomb threats. About an hour later students were told to immediately evacuate the entire campus about two miles southwest of downtown Houston.

The Catholic university has more than 3,700 students.
