3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather as no effect on anyone because if it's raining or snowing everyone just cuts through the building so it's not a huge deal to us

Weather: I dont find weather affecting anything, when it's cold i just cut through the buildings.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Class has been cancelled a lot this winter. The school almost never plows or salts around campus. It's a total slip and slide.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather affects campus in a way because sometimes it makes the students literally hide in like a hibernation form. Today for example, it's a beautiful day outside which will lead all students to spend a great, relaxing day on the quad with friends in between classes or after.

3 College Freshman

Weather: the school usually cancels school when it snows over 3 inches

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

With classes starting in August and ending in May, students will experience all four seasons at Manhattanville. In late August, the rooms in Spellman Hall are like infernos. If a student has a medical condition that allows him to bring an air conditioner, he should make sure to bring a doctor’s note or otherwise face a nasty fine from Student Accounts. As the semester moves along, students will eventually put down the ice cold lemonade and turn on the heat. Although autumn at Manhattanville is aesthetically pleasing, fall evenings can be a little colder than expected sometimes. There are many trees on campus and in the surrounding area, so when all the leaves turn golden orange and red, students know it's time to grab a sweater and maybe some mittens before they head to class. And it just gets colder from there. New York winters can be frigid, with temperatures plummeting into the negatives. On the other hand, with global warming, don’t pack those light jackets and hoodies away in the winter; students sometimes wake up to birds chirping and 65-degree weather. Overall, students should be prepared for rain, snow, sleet, and heat during the winter—and even snow days with snowball fights on the quad! Yet, overnight, naked winter trees will suddenly be draped in bright green leaves and buds. The four cherry blossom trees at the top of the quad bloom and sprinkle pink petals all over the grass and paths. That’s when the whole campus knows April has arrived and the crazy ride known as spring semester is almost over.

In New York, people never know what to expect in terms of weather, so students should plan for everything. Umbrellas and rainboots are helpful when students trek from their rooms to classes. Windbreakers are also a good idea for days when the wind is biting and unbearable. Lastly, it’s nice to stop by the bookstore and pick up a few pieces of Manhattanville gear. T-shirts and sweatpants are staples worn by many students, on and off campus, who like to show their Mville Pride.
