LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Eastern Kentucky University is open today for the first time since a serious threat shut it down last week. 

The campus was shut down after a threatening message was found on a bathroom wall of the Richmond campus. 

Last week, the university's president, Michael Benson, announced that classes would be canceled for the remainder of the week due to a threat found written on the wall of a restroom on campus. The message was discovered on Oct. 4.

There were no classes Monday and Tuesday because of Fall Break.

The university has increased police patrols on campus. Police have interviewed "persons of interest," but no arrests have been made.

The university is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the threat.
