3 College Freshman

Weather: New England weather is as temperamental as one would expect. Snow has cancelled classes a couple of times. Overall, it is manageable.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The campus is on a hill, so it gets pretty windy, but when it's warm out it's really nice.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather has sucked lately with all the snow and freshman have to walk to clubbies but its not a bad walk its under 10 minutes. Also the classes are all close enough that you only have to be in the bad weather for a few minutes

3 College Junior

Weather: Make sure to bring your rain boots.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Way too hot and humid for the first month. Fall is beautiful and cool, but very quick. Snows here and there and I love snow! Rains every so often. I would say it's pretty awesome!

Be prepared: New England has all four seasons. When you arrive in September, you’ll still be wearing summer clothes, sleeping with the windows open, and cranking the fan up to high. Shortly thereafter, a drastic change occurs, and suddenly it’s fall, and the foliage on campus achieves its peak autumnal beauty. As quickly as fall comes, it leaves, banishing those red and golden leaves to the ground. As they scatter and brown, a notable temperature drop takes place, and soon, flutters of snowflakes float on the crisp winter air. Winters in Rhode Island can be harsh, dropping below zero with the wind chill factor. A rainy season makes up the majority of the spring, although there will be a few gloriously sunny days. Pack for all the seasons and all types of weather.

The one drawback of weather on the PC campus is the constant presence of wind. The majority of days are characterized by a chilling and bitter wind. “Blustery” best describes the campus weather, so be sure to take a jacket with you. While competing with the wind may sound daunting, Providence can brag of a diversity of experience in regards to weather. The autumn leaves can’t be beat, and the downy blankets of snow that occasionally grace the campus charm the aesthetic sense.
