Petitioning President of Missouri State University Clif Smart and 1 other

Missouri State University Eclipse Skip Day


0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000.

Thousands of students at Missouri State University will miss out on seeing the full solar eclipse because of the first day of classes. 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 at 100%. Please sign our petition to request the first day of classes be excused for students so they can witness this historic event in it's entirety.

This petition is not meant to be done in a rebellious manner towards the university. We simply believe that the best way to learn is through experience, which in this case takes precedence over class. We respect our University, our president, and our faculty.

(Please ignore the prompt to donate after completing the survey. That is not ours).

This petition will be delivered to:
  • President of Missouri State University
    Clif Smart
  • Missouri State University Board of Governors
