Weather: sunny and beautiful almost all the time. gets chilly after the sun sets but not too much so, just enough to wear some of the fall themed clothes you brought to campus.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Southern California, so it's almost always sunny with a high of 75. It does get cold at night and there are the occasional drizzly days but other than that the weather is absolutely beautiful!

4 College Sophomore

Weather: 75 and Sunny – "75 and Sunny" is one of the slogans on the back of the tour guides' shirts - and it's absolutely true. Usually over 100 degrees when school starts, but by October the weather cools down to the 70s - and stays there more or less until December. Students love to go work outside when the weather is warm, and most out-of-state students say that the weather is a highlight of the CMC experience. You might need a sweatshirt in January... that's about it. Otherwise it's flip-flops all year round!

4 College Junior

Weather: Beautiful, Warm, and Relatively Dry, Except for When It Rains Occasionally – The weather here is gorgeous and one of the many reasons I'm very happy I came here. It can get VERY hot the first and last few weeks of the year (so moving in and out of the dorms can be a sweaty experience, especially if you're in a dorm that doesn't have air conditioning), but otherwise is warm but not too hot. It can stay in the 50s/60s into December and is that warm again starting in March; there are outdoor swimming pools open the vast majority of the year. It can sometimes rain, however, for several days at a time, staying cloudy and very wet, and slightly depressing (girls- bring cute rain boots for these days). But overall, as close to perfect weather as you can get (as long as you don't love snow).

Seventy-five degrees and sunny—what’s not to love? Weather may not seem like a big deal, but when’s it’s this nice, it is! The weather at CMC is more than just weather; it plays a major role in the SoCal lifestyle. When it’s always warm and sunny, people always want to be outside and social. Life’s more balanced because it's impossible to stay inside on a perfect day.

There is a rough patch when school first begins (temperatures hit 100° F), but it’s a dry heat, which makes it bearable. Some dorms have air conditioning, but for those that don’t, September heat is rough. The rainy season starts in late January and continues until early March, but a SoCal rain season isn’t as dramatic as you think. Over the course of two months, it’ll rain a dozen days, and it’s rare to have rain more than two days in a row.

Most students wear casual shorts, tees, and jeans all year-round, and of course, flip-flops. During the winter months, most people work up to sweatshirts/light jackets. It is smart to have rain boots/an umbrella because CMC wasn’t really meant for the rain (no covered walkways, etc). Because the weather is so amazing 99% of the time, students are constantly taking weekend outdoor trips to the beach, mountains, and national parks.
