The weather in Boston can run the extremes. Seasons don’t seem to matter too much here either. The weather can change drastically during the course of a day, and sometimes just during the hour you’re in class. You might even find yourself wearing winter clothes in summer and summer clothes in winter. It truly is unpredictable here, but you get used to it. Usually the fall is absolutely gorgeous, and you only need a light jacket and fleece. However, the winter is freakishly brutal, and sweaters, coats, hats and gloves are necessities. Snow can pile up, and classes won’t get cancelled unless it’s really, really treacherous out. Make sure you bring boots or at least shoes that are good in the snow.

Spring (if Mother Nature is kind enough to give you one) lasts about two or three weeks during second semester, and that’s when all the short skirts and flip-flops come out. Heat waves are known to prevail during finals, so quality studying becomes an arduous endeavor. All in all, the weather at BC will give you a good variety of everything you could want from Mother Nature. You just might get it at unexpected times. Bring clothes and supplies for all seasons, and it probably wouldn’t hurt to carry a sweater and umbrella with you at all times, just in case.
