Campus unites for solar eclipse

Students and professors flocked to the Palm Court to view the partial solar eclipse this afternoon. Although the sky was cloudy with light rain, viewers witnessed the crescent of sunlight during intervals of clarity. The physics, biochemistry, and chemistry departments hosted the viewing and provided solar observation glasses. Some professors canceled classes to allow students to see the natural spectacle. Students watched the eclipse with friends, set picnic blankets on the grass, and took photos. After the glasses supply ran out, some students caught glimpses with their bare eyes or shared glasses amongst their group.
