Berklee College of Music will reopen its campus Friday morning, with the exception of the buildings that are situated in the active crime scene following Monday's bombings.

President Roger H. Brown said all members of the Berklee community must have their school identification Friday for building access, and that he expects the campus to be fully reopened by Monday

However, Brown wrote in a statement that "classes and college activity in the 921, 899 and 855 Boylston facilities will not be conducted Friday, because these are still inside the FBI investigative cordon. These buildings will not be open, for any reason, on Friday."

He also praised the student body for their "bravery and generosity in helping others through this crisis."

"One particularly compelling example is that of Callie Benjamin, a songwriting student who responded immediately to help victims of the blast," he wrote. "We’ve also heard many stories of students donating their time and energy at local hospitals and community gatherings."

Brown said earlier in the week that one student had been injured in the blasts.

"This is the time for us to show our concern and commitment to one another," Brown said in his statement today. "And not let a cowardly, senseless act deter us from our collective aspirations to build a better world."
