3 College Sophomore

Weather: I'm already from the northeast area, so I'm used to all 4 seasons, and long winters, Lewisburg is the same. If you're NOT used to long winters and heavy snow, get ready for the cold, and lots of ordering in. Don't anticipate any class cancellations though.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's central PA. It rains and snows. Bring rain boots, a rain coat, umbrella, snow boats and a heavy winter coat and you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winters are bad but its beautiful in the spring

3 College Freshman

Weather: Rainy days and inches of snow can make it hard to go out and do things, and class will never be cancelled for it. It isn't too bad to handle and there are certain things that make it easier, such as one club putting out umbrellas to borrow when you walk to class. On pretty spring days, everyone is outside wearing shorts and campus seems a lot more vibrant.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: School doesn't get closed for snowstorms and stuff because it's not a commuter campus.

The weather in Pennsylvania is truly unpredictable. It can go from blue skies and sun to dark clouds and rain in a matter of minutes. The summer and fall see a lot of rain, and the first snow usually occurs sometime in November. January and February are the cold months. When you come back from winter break in January, the wind chill can be shocking. It does not last too long, though, and students generally try and escape to warm places for spring break. In March and April, the weather is very temperamental. One day it will be warm and sunny, then the next day it will be snowing as disgruntled students trudge to class. Basically, be prepared for all seasons. A warm jacket is a necessity, especially since Bucknell students walk pretty much everywhere, even in the dead of winter.

The great thing about Bucknell’s weather pattern is that the University truly does see all four seasons, and the campus remains gorgeous all year round! In the fall, the leaves change, and the campus is covered in an orange-red hue. In the winter, the snow spreads a crisp, angelic blanket over the quads and sloping hills. In the spring, everything is green, the cherry blossoms bloom, and students emerge from inside to soak up the sun.
