Students, Come Watch the Eclipse with Us

How would you react to seeing the sky turn to night in the middle of the day? That’s what happens when the moon comes between the Earth and the Sun, creating a total solar eclipse. While many places across the United States will only be able to see a partial eclipse, our campus has the luck of being able to experience a total eclipse. In celebration of this event, Vol State will be hosting an eclipse viewing party on August 21st, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

This date is a week before classes begin, so Vol State students will need to register for the event like everyone else.

The eclipse watch is free to attend, so bring your family. There will be educational activities that people of all ages can enjoy, from scientific demonstrations to arts and crafts. Personally, I’m most excited for the eclipse-themed writing and music that will be featured in the Wood Campus Center. If you’re interested in attending, we ask that you register with us here. It will give us an idea of how many people will be showing up, and will help us create a better event for you. Just a reminder that even if you are a Vol State student, you will need to register with us beforehand. Also, remember that this is an event outside of the fall semester, which begins on August 28th.

Everyone, from everywhere, is welcome to attend the Eclipse Watch event, it's not just for students or Sumner County residents. But please register.
