NGU Total Eclipse 2017

Tigerville SC (August 11, 2017) As excitement builds for the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, North Greenville University invites the Tigerville and surrounding communities to view the once-in-a-lifetime event on its campus.

Beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 21, the Office of Student Life in cooperation with the Physical Science Department of the College of Science and Math is sponsoring guided viewing along with telescope imaging and information on the Student Center Field next to the Todd Dining Hall.

In the Tigerville area, a partial eclipse will begin at approximately 1:00 p.m. and reach totality at 2:38 p.m. This total eclipse portion will last approximately one minute at the Tigerville location.

During the period of totality, you should expect the temperature to drop, observe animals acting as they would at nighttime, and be able to view the corona (outermost portion) of the Sun.

In order to participate in the solar eclipse viewing, guests must wear specially made protective glasses to avoid damaging effects to their vision. The Office of Student Life will have a limited supply of glasses available for use on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guests are also encouraged to bring their own water, sunscreen, umbrellas, chairs, and blankets. Parking on campus is very limited. Guests are encouraged to use the outer parking areas, including parking at the Stadium across from the main campus.
