3 College Freshman

Weather: This winter has been really cold it was really nice in the early fall up until Halloween and the spring has been weird going from snowing to mid-high 70s almost every week

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather has been weird lately. It has been really snowy and icy and then gets really sunny and hot for a few days. I like it but it makes dressing for class a little difficult in the morning!

4 College Freshman

Weather: Though there have been some days with snow, ice, and rain, the weather is really a mood changer for students on campus and everyone is truly excited and up beat.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I love the warm weather in the fall and spring. The winters can be pretty cold and sometimes we get snow. The good thing about snow is that when even a tiny bit of snow falls campus pretty much shuts down.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in North Carolina is unexpected. It could be really good or really bad but I like it.

North Carolina weather is what draws many people to High Point. The weather is wonderful because it’s warm and sunny 90 percent of the time. It’s Southern enough to reap the benefits of the warm weather, but it still has changes in seasons, which gives campus life some variety. The longest seasons are definitely spring and summer. It will generally start getting warm on campus in March and will stay warm until early to mid-November. High Point experiences fall and winter, as well, but they are much shorter than if you went to school in the Northeast.

The unusual thing about weather in North Carolina is how quickly it changes. It can be thunderstorming in the morning on your way to class, and by the time you get out, it’s sunny and a perfect day for the pool. Another thing students have to adjust to is tornado warnings and watches. These occur generally during the fall and spring, and for students who come from areas of the country where tornados aren’t prevalent, it can take some getting used to. Overall, North Carolina weather is what brings many students to the University, and it's definitely a perk of going to school there.

Did You Know?
North Carolina weather can be extremely unpredictable. It can snow in the morning and then be 60 degrees by noon. For most months, it is pretty nice out, and you can walk around in shorts and T-shirts, but always be prepared for that sudden, random shift in temperature!
