BETHLEHEM, Pa. (CBS) – Lehigh University is reporting a second case of bacterial meningitis on campus.

School officials say they have handed out more than 4,000 doses of antibiotics in response to the reported cases.

A female student was hospitalized last week after attending a fraternity party.  A male freshman was hospitalized on Sunday.

Bacterial meningitis is a potentially fatal infection of the central nervious system and is spread by saliva or prolonged contact with an infected person.
