Radford UniversityThe Richmond Times Dispatch reports that three dozen Radford University students were treated at a local hospital yesterday after a mysterious illness brought on stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.

School spokesman Rob Tucker said three of the students were admitted to the Carilion New River Valley Medical Center for evaluation. The others were released after treatment.

The New River Valley Health District is trying to find the cause of the illness and could have results back from a Roanoke laboratory as early as today.
