4 College Sophomore

Weather: I loved during the winter season how we got so much snow yet classes were canceled which was every students dream. During the spring the atmosphere of the campus glowed like magic.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Icy sidewalks are dangerous & umbrellas are a must

3 College Senior

Weather: There have been some major rain storms, which make it hard to get to class. Also, this winter was pretty extreme and campus closed a few times.

3 College Junior

Weather: Some snow days which resulted in make up days.

Season allergies in Spring and Fall

4 College Freshman

Weather: Fairfax weather is pretty nice. The only complaints are how humid it is in late august, and what that does to my hair (its not pretty), and having to walk to class in the rain (give up on any hopes of staying dry now). Otherwise, the weather is mild and provides for many sunny days in which you must debate sitting outside or going to your assigned class.

From mild and breezy in the fall, to sunny and humid in the summer, Virginia weather can be as unpredictable as a drunken frat boy. Students definitely get to experience the best of all fours seasons, including snow days in the winter and great tanning weather in the summer and spring.

For a majority of the months that school’s in session, it is cold, so trekking to class can be a bit of a pain for students unless they wear layers. Invest in a couple of good pairs of boots, especially a pair of rain boots—they’ll come in handy on those dreary and rainy days when there’s a 9 a.m. class to attend. However, except for this past winter when the area got blasted with 30 plus inches of snow, the winters aren’t so bad; there is usually little to no snow accumulation on campus. The area provides a lot of fun seasonal activites, such as the D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival in the spring, and a variety of pumpkin patches to visit in the fall.
