3 College Sophomore

Weather: Tunnels are good but walking to classes down Jefferson in bad weather is annoying.

3 Recent Alumnus

3 College Sophomore

Weather: If you choose to come to school in Buffalo, then you know what you are getting yourself into.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's usually not too bad but it does done in the winter however a lot of the snow skips over the campus because there is a lake nearby.

3 College Junior

Weather: If you are used to Buffalo weather it is no big. Campus is super small and there is an underground tunnel connecting a couple of buildings. It is just the walk to your car or dorm that is awful. But hey, global warming makes the winters more mild.

Buffalo has a bad rap where weather is concerned, but it is undeserved. Though occasionally winter feels like it lasts until April, and admittedly, there will be a crazy blizzard here and there, Buffalo is always blessed with all four seasons in their entirety. 

There are subtle yet perceptable changes in the air that usher in the seasons: the crisp but warm early-October breeze that has a pleasant smell somehow identified with pumpkins, the first snow in December that wraps around the houses, the whiff of grass and mud with a wink of sunshine in March, and the hot day in May that is a precursor of better things to come. You probably won't get a great tan at Canisius. But you won't be bored—Buffalo weather is certainly not monotonous.
