Solar Eclipse at Willamette

End Date: 8/21/2017End Time: 11:30 AM

Event Description

On Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the continental United States for the first time since 1979. And at Willamette, we'll have a front row seat to one of the most incredible and elusive sights our planet has to offer.

The Willamette University Bearcat Explorers Travel Program invites you to join President Steve Thorsett, fellow alumni and friends for a viewing of this rare natural phenomenon as part of Willamette's year-long 175th birthday celebration. You'll get to enjoy three days alongside WU friends, lodging either on campus or at The Grand Hotel, a tour of Willamette Valley wineries, a VIP dinner with President Thorsett, educational activities, and a premier spot to observe "The Great American Eclipse" in totality at precisely 10:17 a.m. PST.
