Students generally despise the unpredictable New England weather. Falls tend to be mild, while winter and spring can be a seasonal grab bag. To combat the freezing winters, students recommend waterproof shoes and scarves to go along with your waterproof winter jacket. Waterproof shoes are extremely important, especially once the snow begins to melt and turns the streets into a brown slush of water and ice.

Students from New England will probably have few problems with the weather, while students from warm-weather areas such as the South and West will need time to adjust to the New England weather patterns. Everyone eventually adjusts, but if the only ice you like is in your drink, then stay away from Harvard.
