During the wintertime, getting to school can be annoying for students. On snow days, those who drive to campus must deal with digging their car out, and for those who use public transportation, there also tends to be delays. Trucks come frequently to shovel the snow on campus. When more than eight inches of snow covers the ground, the campus closes. When QC is closed due to inclement weather conditions, students receive a text message and e-mail notifying them of this change. Information on special safety policies is provided to coaches regarding their athletes' safety and well-being, and coaches are required to be aware of weather conditions, determining whether practice and meets should take place. Even if practice is cancelled, students are still often out and about; on days the campus closes, students often get together for snowball fights.

Once the snow melts, there are sometimes floods, and this affects walkways and safety on campus. However, when it gets warm, it’s gorgeous. Students play soccer, football, or Frisbee on campus during the warm weather months. They like to sit on the quad, watch the NYC skyline (a great view from campus!), watch the fountain outside of the library, or just bask in the sun while reading a good book.
