MILTON, Mass. — Friday morning, Curry College confirmed it plans to move to remote learning on Tuesday, Feb. 22, until Wednesday, Fe. 23.
School officials told Boston 25 News that during the time classes are virtual, all campus offices and dormitories will remain open. This decision follows after a series of “hateful symbols and threats” appeared on the Milton campus.
Curry College has announced a $10,000 reward for information connected to the latest incidents that have happened on 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. 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.”— Curry College
There has also been increased security at Curry College after school leaders and police first reported a message that targeted the Black community.
The school sent out a public safety alert to students listing the spots where the threats were discovered:
- Thursday, Jan. 27: North Campus Residence Hall, first-floor laundry room
- Friday, Jan. 28: Student Center, second-floor men’s restroom stall
- Friday, Jan. 28: Miller Field House, men’s restroom near the basketball court
- Sunday, Jan. 30: Student Center, second floor, inside Fitness Center storage cubby
- Sunday, Jan. 30: Lombard Hall, first-floor hallway & first-floor men’s restroom
“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.”— Curry College
