Weather: All that you can expect from a Rhode Island school, the winters are harsh, but spring and fall are breathtaking to witness.

3 College Freshman

Weather: If you are used to the four seasons, nothings changed. Campus is small so everything is accessible whether it rains or shines.

3 College Senior

Weather: It's very windy, since the campus is located on the hill.

If you aren't from New England (or somewhere equally cold), prepare yourself: Winter in Rhode Island normally lasts the majority of the school year (four to five months), and it can be brutal. Between late October and late April, expect temperatures in the range of 10 below zero to maybe the 40s or 50s (max), with lots of snow, sleet, and ice. September through October and April through May are beautiful, though, and almost make the rest of the year worth it. The fall starts out warm and quickly gets colder, but the brilliant red/orange/purple foliage and crisp autumn air are enough to take your breath away. Spring can be rainy, but campus is soon covered in flowers, and on sunny days the school comes alive. Everyone takes advantage of the warm spring weather by lying outside by the pond with friends or playing volleyball. On really nice days, students will travel to the beaches along Rhode Island's coast, which are just a short 30-minute drive away. Campus is windy during every season, thanks to its location on a hill and the wind tunnels created by the buildings. You will experience all four seasons at Bryant, so be prepared for all of them; however, keep in mind that winter is by far the longest. Pack accordingly and remember the key to staying warm: layers, layers, and more layers!
