3 College Junior

Weather: I live in Illinois so it has been a rough winter, but it is nice in the Spring and Fall.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's always windy which sucks especially in the winter, but when the sun is out, its gorgeous. Sitting on the quad is a very relaxing way to spend your time on a nice sunny day.

3 College Student

Weather: The weather is very windy on campus. Sometimes it feels like the winds are stronger than in Chicago, the Windy City, itself. The weather is bearable, and it should not greatly impact my experiences at Illinois State University.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's typical Illinois, with is warm one second and cold the next.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is Illinois after all. Tends to be a little warmer than Chicago.

The weather in Bloomington-Normal is typical of the Midwest. In August, around the beginning of the school year, ISU is still in the hot stage, and most people wear shorts and tanks to class. As fall approaches, people start to wear more sweats or casual looks. Winter brings the cold weather and the heavy, warm coats. Snow removal on the quad is taken care of in a timely manner by the University, but it is recommended that students still wear snow boots and bundle up. The University is pretty lenient when it comes to winter weather and understands that students do not want to walk to class through a blizzard or when it is negative 20 degrees outside, so occasionally, the University will have a snow day. Also, a lot of professors commute to work and might even cancel class even when the University doesn't.

Spring is the time of year when students start to migrate outside and hang out on the quad. Every day is around 50 degrees, and the whole town seems vibrant. Students are either excited the weather is getting nicer or happy that school is coming to a close. Students that stay at ISU through the summer months enjoy a hot and humid summer, when the temperature can hover around 90 degrees! Luckily, for these students, there are a number of water parks throughout Bloomington-Normal that offer discounts to students with a valid ID.
