3 College Sophomore

Weather: The fall and spring on campus during the school year is absolutely beautiful with all the trees and the river going through the middle of campus. The winter on the other hand tends to harbor harsh winds and lots and lots of snow, but that's Michigan for you.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: rough winters,, takes a while for spring to kick in.. fall is beautiful can't beat it

2 College Sophomore

Weather: This winter was a pretty brutal one for students on campus. Classes can be as far away as 20 minutes and when the weather is below 20 frostbite becomes a large issue. Our campus has transportation, but because of the amount of students some buses only let a couple students on at a time because of the over crowded ness on the buses.

College Senior

Weather: Buses are available when it is too cold to walk.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In the fall when you arrive, it's the most beautiful and amazing university on earth. Winter is cold and you have to expect snow but as soon as spring arrives, it's back to being beautiful and everyone gets back outside for activities.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Michigan residents experience a variety of weather patterns. It is not unusual to begin a week wearing snow boots and end it in shorts and a T-shirt. Summers are hot and can often be humid, while winters bring below-freezing temperatures and plenty of snow. Students should pack everything from shorts to a full set of winter gear. Fall and spring usually bring temperatures somewhere between these two extremes. During these seasons students can be found studying or playing sports outdoors, enjoying the sunshine. Rainy days occasionally put a damper on walking to class, but at least residents don’t have to worry about hurricanes or earthquakes.

Although Michigan weather is not always pleasant, seeing the leaves explode into color during the fall shouldn’t be missed. Despite the winter cold, snow-covered trees and buildings turn campus into a miniature winter wonderland. Students from the Midwest or the East Coast should have a good idea of what to expect from Michigan's weather. Those who are fortunate enough to hail from the sunnier states, however, are in for a treat. Just don’t forget to pack a warm coat, gloves, earmuffs, and one heavy-duty umbrella
