"Thankfully, there was no criminal activity," said Eric Mansfield, executive director of media relations at Kent State University.

Police and BCI were sent to the scene out of an abundance of caution at around 4:30 p.m. when two people were seen placing something in the woods.

The scene was processed and is being cleared.
