3 College Junior

Weather: The weather is a toss up. It changes very quickly. D.C. was built in a swamp and thus you have very muggy weather. The humidity is the worst.

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.
