4 College Freshman

Weather: Everything is very close on campus, so weather does not effect much. It is difficult to get to class when there is ice on the sidewalks and there is often a great deal of rain. However, buildings are close enough to walk through to get to different classes and buildings safely.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Rain, rain, go away. Oh, wait—see ya again tomorrow. No matter the month or season, rain comes at least once a week. Due to the rain, the biggest fashion accessory on campus is a pair of rain boots. Even on days when it's not supposed to rain, girls sport rain boots just in case it hits while they're in class.

Because Misericordia is located in the Back Mountain, it's usually colder than other areas surrounding the University. Bundling up when walking around campus is a necessity, due to the high winds that hit each and every day. Even students who live on the edge of campus drive up to their classes because the winds can be unbearable, especially in December and January. The weather seems to be the nicest and warmest in the beginning of the fall semester and at the end of the spring semester; it's usually warm enough to wear a light jacket and flip-flops when walking to class. When warm weather hits, most students choose to sit outside and do work or even just enjoy the nice day. It's the cold months of November, December, January, and February that keep students indoors.
