The Hiram College Library is pleased to welcome alumnus Daniel Gavazzi ‘10 to host this year’s Friends of the Library Winter 2024 Program. The presentation will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 20, both in-person and virtually.   

Prepare for the April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse in Ohio by learning about why eclipses occur, how we prepare for them, and more from Hiram College alumnus and physics instructor Daniel Gavazzi during his presentation “Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt: What’s Going on During a Solar Eclipse?”. Following the event, receive instructions to make your own solar viewer and learn more about Hiram College’s plans to celebrate the eclipse on campus on April 8. 

Gavazzi graduated from Hiram College in 2010 with a bachelor’s in physics. He then went on to receive his doctorate in biophysics from Kent State University before coming back to Hiram as a visiting instructor of physics and computer science.
