DELAND, Fla. -- What do you get when a sinkhole opens up on a college campus? A teachable moment.
- Sinkhole opened up at Stetson University
- Hole is 25 feet by 18 feet wide, 8 to 10 feet deep
- Officials will monitor the hole over the next 48 hours
A sinkhole opened up Monday on the Stetson University campus in an empty field.
The school roped off the 25-feet-by-18-feet wide hole and is monitoring it for right now, but it's not near any property and not a danger to students or staff.
But for one class it was provided a valuable lesson. Stetson says Adjunct Prof. David Griffis took his environmental science and society class out to the sinkhole for a lesson, giving the students some practical knowledge.
