3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's New England Weather. In 2012-2013 The City of Worcester had the most snowfall in the whole country. Fall and Spring are when the campus are the most beautiful but during the Winter it can start to get annoying.

4 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from Chicago so I really don't see much of a difference. Therefore, it doesn't really bother me that it's cold half of the year. However, this year has been pretty bad, and I'd just like it to be spring already.

3 College Junior

Weather: Worcester is a four season city. If you're not prepared for the cold/slush/rain/heat, don't bother.

2 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather kinda sucks. It is so cold and snowy during the winter but the good part is that you aren't really every going very far.

College Freshman

Weather: Our campus is small enough that it is easy to get around on foot no matter what the weather is.

Worcester is like a typical New England town in that it experiences the extremes of all four seasons. The winter gets freezing cold, the summer gets burning hot, and the in-betweens can be full of beautiful sites of changing leaves or budding flowers. They can also be days of abrasive winds and pouring rains. You should bring everything in your arsenal to defend against the elements, and make sure to do a lot more research into the weather if you are from an area that does not have large seasonal changes.

One particularly important piece of weather-combat machinery for Clark would be an air conditioner. The summer air in the city can get immensely humid, and the temperature can often be in the 90s. Clark won’t let you have one on campus without a doctor’s note, but if you plan to sublet or live off campus, then an air conditioner is a must have. Winters are better spent on campus, as the dorms seem to retain heat in excess. It may be freezing outside, but if you’re in a Clark residence hall, you can plan on sweating while it snows.
