Community Roundup: September

Minecraft around the world!

The world of Minecraft is just teeming with activity – both inside and outside the game. Building projects, Skyblock contests, in-game events – there's just so much to keep up with! Fortunately, you don’t have to scan the web to stay on top of things. In addition to our community news (and other news), we’re bringing you our first periodic roundup of Minecraft happenings. Let’s dive right into it!

A blocky school start

Warming up our hearts faster than a trip to the Nether, there has been a growing movement with schools worldwide, helping students head back to school while keeping their communities safe through the use of Minecraft. After many schools held digital graduations last spring, the new school year has also brought a need for innovative solutions, with several campuses stepping up to the challenge.

Following last spring’s graduation, Blockeley University (UC Berkeley's Minecraft Campus) has helped newcomers transition to fall with a virtual pre-semester orientation. Closer to Mojang’s Redmond office, the Office of Admissions at the University of Washington added a Minecraft campus tour to their lineup of video tours. George Washington University, Manchester Metropolitan University, and the University of Toronto, Mississauga, have also stepped up to the challenge.


If you’re curious to see some other campuses we haven’t mentioned here, community member Jasper takes us on a short tour with ten randomly ranked selections!

That’s all for now, but be sure to keep sharing the great things you’re doing online, and we may just include it in a future roundup!
