3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is typical of New England, but for people that aren't used to it it is probably annoying.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Boston winter...Brutal. Boston Fall/late Spring...Mesmerizing. Boston Summer....we're on holiday!

Make sure you own some gloves and a good coat boston has a 'bi-polar' weather system (won't explain) but one day its 70, 2 days later its 34. seriously no joke its probably the worst aspect of Northeastern, which speaks volumes for northeastern!

3 College Freshman

Weather: You certainly have to be able to bare the winter if you are going to Boston, but the fall and spring are amazing beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Whether you are from a place cold weather or warm weather, getting to experience all four seasons in Boston can be very rewarding!

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Very very cold winters but really nice in the spring and summer.

The weather in Boston is certainly nothing to brag about. The summer months are nice and warm, but the winter months are freezing and full of snow. While the low temperatures are not necessarily enjoyable, there are a few good things about going to school in Boston during the wintertime. First of all, snow and ice in the city make for a difficult commute, and it can be very dangerous for students walking to class. This means there is a good amount of snow days for Northeastern students. The winter months also allow for fun activities like ice skating on Frog Pond or the Christmas tree lighting in the Boston Commons. 

Fall and spring seasons in Boston are relatively comfortable and really show off the city's beauty. It does seem to rain a lot in Boston, but Northeastern provides underground tunnels that transport you around campus so you can avoid getting wet. If you don't mind the cold and enjoy a change in seasons, you won't mind Boston's weather much at all.
