3 College Freshman

Weather: When it's warm out, there's numerous activities going on in the quad. This year has been a long, cold winter but I'm looking forward to the warmth again!

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winters are extremely cold. Lots of snow. Spring can arrive annoyingly late, and the Fall is very lovely. Summers are always hot.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The rain and snow create puddles that are impossible to avoid because of the uneven side walks. Spring and summer weather are enjoyable on the quad.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: This winter was horrible. I am sure most of the people in the Midwest feel this way. Bradley did a decent job of clearing the snow, but I wish they would have done a better job on the sidewalks. There was still a good layer of snow on them sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Weather: In the winter it is pretty cold and windy so walking to class can be really bad. It can be very gloomy when it rains but other than that the weather is nice.

Locals are quick to say, "If you don't like the weather, stick around five minutes and it will change." Situated in central Illinois, Peoria gets every season's extremes, from blistering heat in the dead of summer to a foot of snow in the middle of winter. From June to September, Peoria's average high is in the mid-80s, and it begins to cool down in October. Fall semester usually begins the last week of August, when the weather is sunny, humid, and hot. October is when the temperatures drop a bit, but it's one of the best months for weather. With average highs in the mid-60s, most students switch to jeans and light sweatshirts for most of this month. When November rolls around, it's time to start layering clothes. And by December, when highs are usually at or right above freezing, students are wearing all-out winter gear. The cold and snow usually let up by mid- to late March, and when school lets out in May, it's back to clothes from August.

These are the norms, but Peoria has been known to have a stretch of 70-degree weather in January and snow in April. With Peoria's unpredictable weather, it's smart to pack clothes for every condition just to make sure they're at hand if needed. Rain, snow, sleet, hail, tornadoes, and floods are all normal for Peoria, and in one year, students feel temperatures below zero and above 100. While the weird weather gets annoying at times, it is nice to experience all four seasons.
