3 College Freshman

Weather: You get used to the crazy weather. Hot and hotter most of the time. But in winter a lot of rain.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Living in Louisiana, the weather really doesn't affect students that are from here. We know that one day it can be extremely and the next day it's possible to be snowing. Although, I notice is very challenging and frustrating to students that isn't from here. They find it weird that it be extremely hot for Christmas in Louisiana, and it be freezing cold in March. But once, living here and adapting to the weather varying, it won't be much of a problem anymore.

Weather: When it is rainy or misty its miserable walking to class from class. But it never gets THAT cold for too long and it starts to get 70 degrees in February which is great!

4 College Junior

Weather: For most of the Spring semester, the campus is a beautiful place to be. The agriculture combined with a sunny sky and light breeze make the simple things like walking to class much more enjoyable. Louisiana's weather can change pretty spontaneously. at the start of the Spring semester school was cancelled for 4 because all of Baton Rouge was iced over. For the three years I've been at LSU, that was the first time I ever experienced an extreme cold on campus like that. But ice storms are rare in my opinion.

Weather: I'm from Baton Rouge, so I'm used to temperamental weather, but it is horrible. One day is freezing cold, wet, and rainy, the next it's scorching hot and miserable. Kind of the worst thing ever.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Though the South was known for the devastation of hurricanes, LSU students from past years never saw hurricane weather as anything more than a hopeful cause to cancel classes, and Baton Rouge was rarely hit hard. This remained true until students witnessed the devastation of Hurricane Katrina to the southern part of the state. Even though Baton Rouge still suffered only minor damages from the storm, current and prospective students will probably more readily consider the possibility of a disaster occuring in their area.

On a day-to-day basis, Baton Rouge weather is hot and unbearably humid. The changing of the seasons is fairly nonexistent since the temperature rarely drops significantly. It snows, basically, every five years. Baton Rouge is not the place to take in beautiful autumn leaves or major snow drifts, but if you are looking for somewhere that allows you to constantly wear flip-flops and shorts without being judged, welcome home. It rains heavily at a moment's notice, so it is best to keep an umbrella in your bookbag, or at least check the Weather Channel before heading to class. Still, the majority of the year, students bask in the sun, wearing T-shirts and shorts and enjoying the great outdoors, no matter what the season.
