Weather: The walk to the school from parking is king of far. We have a lot of snow most of the winter, so you need to wear boots all the time.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: All the building are attached underground so you never have to go outside if it's snowing or raining which is usually always occurring in Wisconsin, its great!

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Our college has an alert system that they sent you text, email and even announcements about the weather affecting our college. They make sure that we are notified in enough time so we don't get stuck or waste time coming to class if the class has been cancelled. And this is for weather , teacher reason and any other reason for the college closing

1 College Freshman

Weather: It is horrible! parking is horrible since it is in a busy city and when its cold or rainy or really hot you have to walk about six blocks just to get to one side of the campus . The campus is not close to anything and the weather sucks most of the time in Wisconsin.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: school may shut down in winter at late notice

Weather varies from one day to the next in Milwaukee. Weather can also vary depending on how far you are from Lake Michigan. Some places closer to the lake will be cooler and get more rain and definitely more ice or snowstorms, whereas other areas will not get any snow at all. Even though the weather can change quite quickly, Wisconsin is lucky that it does not have an annual hurricane season or tsunamis.

Students should be prepared for hot temperatures at the beginning of the school year and freezing conditions by the end of October—it often snows around Halloween. By the end of March, the weather can either be sunny and warm or still bitter cold. Most years, the winters are not filled with snow, but rather ice and bitter, freezing winds. Students need to be prepared for whatever the weather may bring because it will bring it! The seasons do offer a lot of different outside activity opportunities, such as rock climbing, hiking, sledding, snowshoeing, swimming, and water skiing.
