FSU Gives Students 4,000 Pairs of Solar Eclipse Glasses

August 18th, 2017 by Jake Stofan


It’s been 47 years since a solar eclipse was visible from Florida State University and students at the school didn’t hesitate to make the best of their experience when offered free solar eclipse glasses.

The University gave out 4,000 free eclipse viewing glasses to students over the past few weeks.

This morning they gave out the last 500.

Officials at the school say students came out in mass to grab their pair.


“We gave out between four hundred fifty or five hundred glasses in thirty minutes this morning, and hopefully we’ll get all those coming back this afternoon, because we’re trying to do a photo for the archives of everybody that is looking at the sun and watching the eclipse going on,” said Todd Shaver, Program Director for Oglesby Union at FSU.

During the eclipse students gathered at the Oglesby Union Green to pose in the photo for the schools archives.
