Ahh, the first few weeks of college. We remember them fondly. What we don’t remember, though, is a sign of the end times happening on the same day as our convocation. Congrats, class of 2021. Ok, so maybe the total solar eclipse happening a few hours after your convocation is not the beginning of the 2017 apocalypse (we thought covfefe would set it off, to be honest). But the start of college is a big deal and so we’ve gathered all the eclipse info and survival tips to get you through. Our trusty, college-age interns have also compiled a comprehensive Charleston guide: from coffee spots with wi-fi to music venues that let you in with your regular ID (no fakes required!) to late night eats. Grab your glasses, a guide, and a buddy, and good luck out there, students.
