Campus Hot Spot

Students, alumni, faculty and administration came together on August 21 for a rare viewing of Solar Eclipse 2017.

Using eclipse glasses to protect their eyes, members of the Pride saw about 70 percent of the sun covered on campus. Some even brought homemade devices, allowing them to safely view projections of the eclipse’s reflection.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” said television and drama major Kadeem Adrian, ’19. “You hear about these things happening, but I feel like you never actually get to experience them.”

Alumnus Aakaash Bali ’11 came back to campus just to watch the eclipse with old friends. He said the experience was something to cross off his bucket list.

While many had the opportunity to view the eclipse on campus, some students and professors were out west in the path of totality and were able to see 100 percent coverage.

See below for a look at Eclipse 2017 at Hofstra.
