Curry College offering $10,000 reward over recent ‘hateful symbols and threats’ on campus

MILTON, Mass. — Curry College has announced a $10,000 reward for information connected to “hateful symbols and threats” on the Milton campus.

“We cannot say enough: hate has no home here and we will take every step possible to identify the perpetrator(s) and maintain the safety of our community,” according to a statement from the college.

“Curry College is an inclusive community where embracing differences is essential to creating a safe and welcoming environment for exploration and learning, as well as personal and professional growth. It is therefore both enormously disheartening and disturbing that our school community continues to be violated by hateful symbols and threats,” according to the statement.

Curry College’s Department of Public Safety and the Milton Police Department continues to investigate the incidents.

“They’ve been finding things for the last couple of weeks. Swastikas in different types of hate speech,” said a student who wanted to remain anonymous.

There has also been increased security at Curry College after school leaders and police first reported a message that targeted the Black community.

“The College is making hard choices under difficult circumstances with limited options until the perpetrator is caught. We implore any member of our community who may have any information about this series of incidents to please get involved. The College is offering a reward of $10,000 to any individual who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals,” according to the statement from the college.
