A malfunctioning electrical transformer near the D.P. Culp University Center threw the East Tennessee State University campus into darkness Thursday afternoon.

University Relations Director Joe Smith said the power was out between 12:25 and 1:15 p.m. until a work crew was able to restore it.

Shortly after two, the electricity was on at ETSU, but Smith said workers were still attempting to correct the transformer problem.
