EGCC to reopen Thursday

YOUNGSTOWN — Eastern Gateway Community College will resume normal business operations Thursday after being closed for one-and-a-half days due to an unspecified threat it received Tuesday afternoon.

Officials announced shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, the decision to reopen was made after having conversations with law enforcement officials in both Youngstown and Steubenville.

The campuses were closed Tuesday afternoon after the school received a telephoned threat.

Mike Geoghegan, president of EGCC, said since the threat was not made against a specific campus it was decided to close both campuses.
