3 College Sophomore

Weather: I mean, it's Ohio, so you can't expect fantastic weather all of the time. We are in the Midwest, so we get all four seasons, so it is a pain sometimes, but really nice other times.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Ohio...what do you expect?

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Ohio. The falls are amazing and idyllic. The springs are rainy until around April when it begins to warm up and bloom. The winter's are gorgeous if you like snow but yes, it is pretty chilly.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I grew up in Michigan so I'm used to the unpredictable weather. It really isn't that bad but one thing to note is that classes are almost never canceled, even at well below negative temperatures. Professors of course can decide to cancel class on their own but it is almost never done campus wide. Since the campus is small and the buildings close together, the weather doesn't really affect my campus experience because walking from my house to the other end of the academic quad will take me about five minutes.

3 College Junior

Weather: There is a broad range of weather, so a little something for everyone.

Weather in Wooster, Ohio can take some getting used to if you come from a consistent climate. Wooster experiences all four seasons, but that doesn't mean that the weather is predictable. People will tell you that the weather is wacky in Ohio, and they are right. It is usually hot and fairly humid in the summer, and cold and snowy in the winter. During spring and fall, however, the season seems to change on a whim. One minute it will be 75F outside, and the humidity will make the sweat drip off your face, and the next day it will be 57F, and you’ll need to bring out the long sleeves.

Students should come prepared for all weather. But remember that everything you need on campus is only a 10-minute walk from your dorm, so the weather never gets in the way of life at Wooster. You should invest in snow boots, a warm winter jacket, and a hat or scarf—because Ohio is flat, the bitter cold wind whips around in the winter. Rain boots are a good idea for the spring, and don't forget a fan to put in your room for the warm days!

Did You Know?
There is a legend at Wooster that if the Kauke Arch can be completely filled with snow during the night, all classes will be canceled the next day. Although classes have never actually been canceled as a result, year after year, students take part in this fun tradition. And when the arch is successfully filled, even if classes aren't canceled, students often take a personal day to reward themselves.
