Total solar eclipse to soar through Athens 

Suzanne Piper | April 5, 2024

Athens is just outside the zone of totality for the total solar eclipse Monday, April 8, which will be one of the biggest celestial events of the year. In Athens, the maximum eclipse will occur around 3:15 p.m. A solar eclipse happens because the moon orbits Earth and Earth orbits the sun. The planes of those two orbits are offset from one another by a 5-degree angle, and about every 18 months, the orbits line up, casting a shadow, Douglas Clowe, professor and director of the Astrophysics Institute, said. Click here to read the full story.

Rooks Reflects: Studying abroad takes independence to another level 

Sophia Rooksberry | April 5, 2024

Aug. 18, 2022, my parents and I sat at Casa Nueva and reminisced on the past 18 years of our lives together. They had just moved me into my freshman dorm and were about to leave me to my own devices for the first time. As I tried to find my way back to East Green, still misty-eyed from our goodbyes, I thought nothing would ever top the level of independence I was feeling. That is, until I shared similarly misty-eyed goodbyes with my parents before beginning my semester abroad. In the few weeks I’ve been studying in Germany, I’ve realized that I had no idea what real independence was until now. Click here to read the full story.
