Mother Withdraws Son from the College After She Can’t See Emergency Blue Light from Other Emergency Blue Light

There is supposed to be at least one blue light within sight from each blue light.

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS – Debbie Nelson P ’23, who had been visiting her son Nick Nelson ’23 for the weekend, came to a halt during a walk on Saturday evening when she realized that she could not see a blue light from the one she and her son were standing next to outside Annenberg.

Nelson’s mother immediately called an Uber to pick them up and drive them to the airport. As soon as they got in the car, Nelson recalls that his mother purchased two one-way tickets home to Baltimore, Maryland and called Dean Khurana to withdraw Nelson from the college. “I get it,” Nelson said, “She just wants me back home in Baltimore where it’s safe.”

Mrs. Nelson reported that she “only sent little Nicky to this damn school because the tour guide reassured [her] there would be at least one blue light within sight from each blue light.” Upon further questioning it was made clear that Mrs. Nelson has neither set foot in Harvard Square nor gone to any other college campus tour. 

Mrs. Nelson also reached out to the fellow members of her freshman parent association “It’s 10 P.M., I Know Where My Children Are.” to urge them to pull their kids from the college as well. The announcement has resulted in other concerned parents’ withdrawing their children from the Class of 2023. 

Dean Rakesh Khurana reassured the student body in an email Sunday evening which stated, “This issue is a priority for the college. As such, we will be adding the installation of more blue lights to our plans for construction. We can expect them to be finished in 2046 after we’ve fixed the HUPD urgent line and adequately staffed HUHS."
