COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

An abandoned package that caused quite a stir on the University of South Carolina's campus Friday morning contained business cards.

University of South Carolina Police, SLED bomb investigators and Columbia Fire Department crews all responded to the intersection of Sumter and Greene Streets when the box was discovered around 10:30.

SLED was able to open the box without incident.

Authorities asked students, faculty and visitors to avoid that part of campus during the investigation.

University officials said those not in the immediate area weren't in any danger. Classes were not affected.
