The students, who suffered minor injuries and were shifted to Christiana Hospital, were later discharged after receiving first aid treatment.
The university has evacuated two buildings, Brown Laboratory and Drake Hall, and has issued a campus advising students to stay out of the area.
“The clean-up of Drake Hall has been completed and the building has reopened. Both students have been released from the hospital,” the university said in a statement.
“Brown Laboratory reopened around 3:30 p.m., and classes there are being held as regularly scheduled. Drake Hall will remain closed, and classes there are canceled until further notice.”
The university further appreciated the first responders for assuring that everyone in the buildings were evacuated safely by taking timely action.
