Wofford students view the eclipse from Wofford

On Aug. 21 at 1:10 p.m., the Wofford campus turned its eyes (covered by ISO-certified safety glasses, of course) toward the skies for the beginning of the solar eclipse. Terriers gathered in teams, departments and with families to watch an event that had been 99 years in the making. The Wofford soccer teams, on campus for workouts, bought eclipse doughnuts and gathered between Gibbs Stadium and the statue of Jerry Richardson to commemorate the event. Although not in the band for a total eclipse, the college saw a 99.93 percent obscuration on campus at 2:29:52 p.m.
