3 College Sophomore

Weather: I have not spent enough time in DC to gauge whether or not the weather will affect my experience

5 College Junior

Weather: Amazing summer/harsh but pretty winter and fall

4 College Sophomore

Weather: During the school year, there's not much to complain about. We get our fair share of all four seasons and campus is beautiful both during the winter and in the spring (especially during cherry blossom season). Summer can be rough, though. If you're staying in the city, prepare for some absurd humidity.

4 College Freshman

Weather: This year was a little cold, but in general, DC weather is mild. Fall and spring are beautiful and particularly scenic on Georgetown's gorgeous campus and in the neighborhood. Winters are cold but not bitter cold. A coat and boots are necessary, and you may not be wearing shorts until the last week of classes in the spring.

Weather is your basic Goldilocks issue: Depending on whom you’re talking to, D.C. is either too hot, too cold, or—in rare cases—just right. For the most part, students are satisfied with the weather in Washington, with fall and spring getting especially rave reviews. However, if you hail from California, like a third of Georgetown's students, you will probably need to prepare yourself for a lot less sun and a lot more rain.

However, when spring rolls around, the whole place is a vision. The city is one of the most beautiful places in America in March and April, and Georgetown in particular is a lovely little town when the leaves turn dark in the fall. Winter can get a bit nasty, however, and most students say they wish Mother Nature would quit her January ambivalence—it snows a lot, but never enough to cancel class.
