In Providence, it seems to rain two out of three days, or it snows a ton. Some days in Providence are absolutely stunning, and if you visit in May, you’ll probably see hundreds of students frolicking on the green. Everyone looks deliriously happy because this is one of the dozen perfect days of the year. Some winters, there are particularly heavy snow falls, which cause the school to close down for a day or two. When it’s not snowing, it can be bitterly cold and depressing as the sun sets before 5 p.m. for a few months in the winter.

But most students adjust to the weather. Rain and snow-resistant clothes are a staple of every student’s wardrobe. Heating in the dorms is fine, but the old houses that students inhabit off campus don’t always have central heating, and gas and electricity bills run high in the cold months. While the weather is nothing to prevent anyone from coming to Brown, it is something that you must be prepared to deal with.
