Masked students walk through the campus of Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., Thursday, Sept. 10, 2020.

MUNCIE, Ind. - Just two weeks after students started returning to Ball State University last month, the surrounding county had become Indiana's coronavirus epicenter.

Out of nearly 600 students tested for the virus, more than half have been positive. Dozens of infections have been blamed on off-campus parties, prompting university officials to admonish students.

University President Geoffrey Mearns wrote that the cases apparently were tied not to classrooms or dormitories but to "poor personal choices some students are making, primarily off campus."
