Total Solar Eclipse with K-State

Bus Trip to the Total Solar Eclipse

Join K-State and the Flint Hills Discovery Center on a once in a lifetime trip to a can't-miss adventure! 

Students and community members are invited to a group experience traveling to witness the eclipse Aug. 21 when the moon will completely cover the sun and be visible in portions of the U.S., including northeastern Kansas. The university and the Discovery Center combined efforts to organize charter buses to take participants to Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas to view the eclipse.

Buses will depart from campus and the Discovery Center at 8 a.m. and return at approximately 4 p.m. Those attending also will enjoy activities and events including food vendors, a beer garden, live music and walking tours.
