3 College Junior

Weather: Sometimes the weather is nice one day, then snowing the next

3 College Sophomore

Weather: the snow has been bad, but it is winter.

3 College Junior

Weather: We've had a bunch of snow days this year and it hasn't been too bad. Just a bunch of catch-up to do. It sucks when it rains because well, rain.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather around campus can vary depending on the season. You have your days when it can be really nice, when it can be windy, rainy or really snowy. Just recently, Arcadia had to be closed because the high amounts of snow caused the power to go out. But, with bad, there is always good. Some days are really nice and you can go lay out on a blanket in the Green and just soak up some sun.

3 College Freshman

Weather: At the beginning of the school year it was extremely hot, unbearable. During the winter it was also unbearable. The school is very cheap and only turned on the heaters once it went below 30 degrees outside while it was freezing in all the dorm rooms for the time being.

If you have never lived in Pennsylvania or in the surrounding states before, you are in for a treat—or not, depending on how much you enjoy very unpredictable weather. In the course of just one day in Pennsylvania, you can alternate between pouring rain, drizzle, sunshine, clouds, and even simultaneous rain and sun (with a rainbow!).

Pennsylvania also has very unpredictable winters. The winter of 2010 was very snowy, with a few major snowstorms that caused many canceled classes at Arcadia. However, some winters are very mild, with only a few flurries. There is really no way to describe Pennsylvania weather. It is best to say that those who have never experienced it will get a taste of almost every type of weather there is—except most extreme types of weather such as tornadoes or hurricanes (though we do get the aftermath of those storms in the form of pouring rain or high-wind gusts).
