2024 Total Eclipse at DePauw

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will pass over central Indiana, giving DePauw a front row seat to a rare and remarkable phenomenon. Although the total phase of the eclipse only lasts a few minutes, the DePauw community is enjoying several weeks of celebration and interdisciplinary learning experiences in anticipation of this event.

The festivities culminate with a shared opportunity for the entire university to pause and experience the eclipse together. There will be no classes in the afternoon of April 8, allowing all eyes on campus to look to the sky. 

Whether you're in the path of totality or not, you can share in the excitement by exploring all things celestial in this collection of eclipse-related resources and media.
