The Astronomy Club at Georgia State University has found interesting ways to share astronomy with students despite the strong light pollution surrounding the campus. We use several 5"-8" telescopes that belong to the Astronomy Department to hold regular solar observing sessions, and we also hold frequent on-campus nighttime observing sessions that highlight bright planets and the Moon, and occasionally a nebula or two. We have also ground our own 8" mirror and built a Dobsonian telescope to enable more off-campus observing.
