A truly unique kickoff to the 2017-18 academic year, the Great American Eclipse Aug. 21 will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Viewing events are planned at multiple locations across the U.S.–including here on campus, where we will experience 97% totality, and in nearby Winnsboro, S.C., where people will experience totality.
The college will host a campus-wide celebration during the Great American Eclipse Aug. 21. All students, faculty, and staff will receive a free pair of solar glasses to safely observe the sun during the eclipse, which will be seen as approximately 97% total from campus.
Enjoy an eclipse-themed lunch in Vail Commons and then bring your eclipse glasses to Chambers lawn from 2:30-3 p.m. to view the eclipse.
Can't make it to campus? Join us LIVE on Facebook, where we'll stream footage from Chambers lawn.
In addition to the campus event, Prof. Kristen Thompson has planned a series of events in Winnsboro, S.C.
All events are free and open to the public. Email Prof. Thompson with any questions.
