GALLERY: IU students move-in for the 2020-21 school year

By Izzy Myszak – Indiana University students living in on-campus housing began moving in Aug. 3. This year a new schedule and plan was enforced for move-in to encourage social distancing and limit the spread of the coronavirus. With no more than 1,500 students moving in per day, RPS created a phased move-in program. Move-ins will go from Aug. 3 to Aug. 23. Upon arrival all students were required to receive a COVID-19 test at Memorial Stadium. According to the RPS website, all students will go through four different checkpoints, including the test, before moving into their assigned room.

GALLERY: Skateboard Park Jam contest draws Southern Indiana skateboarders to Columbus

  The Skateboard Park Jam took place July 25, 2020, at Jolie Crider Memorial Skatepark in Columbus, Indiana. All skateboarders, despite their skill level, were welcome to participate in the event that included music, food, contests and games of SKATE, which is similar to HORSE in basketball. The event was hosted by skateboarder James Ott and sponsored by southern Indiana shops such as Rhett Skateboarding, Good Vibrations Tattoo and Body Art and Nomad Skate Shop. Beginner, intermediate and advanced participants competed in the best trick competition. Hugs and high-fives were shared between participants, regardless of who won. The day ended with a highest ollie contest in which skateboards were stacked on top of each other until no one was able to ollie over the stack.

Protesters gathered July 6 in response to a racist attack on Monroe County human rights commissioner Vauhxx Booker that occurred July 4 near Monroe Lake. The protest had just ended when a car drove through the group as it dispersed, carrying one protester on its hood and another on the driver's side clinging to its windshield wiper.
