Classes are set to resume at Chicago's Malcolm X College after up to 1,000 people were evacuated from the school because a threat was found written on a bathroom wall.

College spokeswoman Elsa Tullos says police have determined the campus is secure and classes will resume after 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Tullos declined to reveal details about the threat discovered Monday morning.

She says the school's security officers responded to the situation with the Chicago Police Department.

Another Chicago college -- St. Xavier University -- has canceled classes indefinitely due to threats found on campus last week.
