Owens Community College will be closed due to the total solar eclipse.

Both the Owens Toledo-area and Findlay-area Campuses are located in the path of the total solar eclipse.

According to NASA, a total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the sun and darkening the sky as if it were dawn or dusk. The last total solar eclipse visible in Ohio was in 1806 and the next total solar eclipse in Ohio will be in the year 2099, according to the Ohio Emergency Management Association (EMA).

Both campus locations will be closed for students, faculty and staff. Offices will be closed and services will be unavailable, including transportation and the IT Help Desk. Owens Express athletic games will not be scheduled on that date. Facility rentals also will be unavailable for scheduling.

The Ohio EMA has published a website to assist in preparation for the eclipse:
