3 College Sophomore

Weather: If you don't like the winters cold, this is not the place for you. Grove City gets more snow than other areas in PA and it is always several degrees colder. Bring boots and a heavy coat.

Rumor has it that rain clouds perpetually fill Grove City skies. A rain coat and an umbrella are essential to the Grove City College student wardrobe. But it's not always raining. Grovers can be sure to experience a full range of the four seasons, usually with a high level of humidity when it's hot. The moisture means frequent stacks of gray clouds, lush springs, and brilliant fall foliage.

Dorms are not air conditioned, so fans and light summer clothing are essential for a comfortable August move-in. Students break out the chunky fall sweaters around October, but diehards will wear flip-flops until the first flakes in November or December. Grove City winters mean snow, ice, and sub-freezing temperatures for several months. Boots, hats, and gloves are a good idea for the five-minute walk to classes, but are must-haves for sledding experiences at Slippery Rock University's popular hill. In some cases, be prepared to quickly shed the winter layers before you swelter in an over-heated dorm room. By April or May, students lose the winter layers and start working on their summer tans. A favorite tanning spot is the grassy inner quad of the women's MAP dormitory. Males are encouraged not to loiter, but end up visiting as their bikini-clad friends study or doze. Like a good Marine-U.S. Postal worker hybrid, Grovers should be well-prepared for whatever comes. Students get to see it all-rains, sleet, sunshine, and snow-and maybe all that in the same day.
