Weather: Weather here is very nice. Sunny most days, but not extremely hot. We haven't had much rain and could use some more.

4 College Freshman

4 College Junior

Weather: Sometimes pretty unpredictable, but it is lovely all year long. I love the rain, breeze, sunshine, all of it.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's always sunny and warm.

5 College Junior

Weather: I love the weather in SLO. I like the daily and seasonal ranges; for the majority of the year I can wear shorts during the day and study on Dexter lawn, and in the evening I throw on a jacket and light scarf (I get cold easily) to go down town or study in the library. The weather is constantly beautiful and perfect for being outdoors.

One of the main draws of living in San Luis is the weather. Since the city is coastal, mornings and evenings tend to be cool, while the fog burns off and temperatures shoot up in the afternoon. The average temperature is 70 F, January through December. This means that students can generally wear flip-flops year-round, which is perfect since most Cal Poly students wouldn't go anywhere without their favorite pair of flip-flops.

Winter is the rainy season, with intermittent showers in the spring. Cold days are never unbearably cold, and of course, it never snows. Summers can get quite hot, but a trip to the beach or pool is always a pleasant way to cool down.
