Tuskegee University Students return to U.S.

A group of students from Tuskegee University are finally home after being stranded in Liberia for weeks due to the Ebola outbreak. The university issued a statement yesterday confirming the students had arrived at the Atlanta airport. All six are healthy with no quarantine restrictions. However, most of the students went home with family members since they missed the beginning of the fall semester. The university has temporarily excused them from classes. Tuskegee University officials say when the students do return to campus, they will be monitored for three weeks to make sure they're not showing any signs of illness. The six students were in Africa as part of a summer program to study abroad. Travel restrictions because of the deadly outbreak of Ebola in West Africa delayed their return trip to the U.S.
