College students at Missouri State University petitioned the university to give them a day off of classes so they can see the solar eclipse.
Students are demanding that Missouri State University cancel classes for an entire day so they can get a slightly better view of the solar eclipse.
“Thousands of students at Missouri State University will miss out on seeing the full solar eclipse because of the first day of classes,” laments an online petition requesting the day-off. “Springfield does not lie on the path of totality for the eclipse, so students will have to drive 2 hours at a minimum to view it.”
