3 College Freshman

Weather: Alabama is usually very hot in the summer, and very humid. With thunder storms here and there. The campus closes every now and then in the morning due to tornado alerts, which are frequent in Alabama in spring and summer. If it's raining on campus, you really need rubber rainboats, otherwise your shoes and pants may get soaked or muddy. A lot of the campus is green, and built on a hill, so rain water runs right through it. Otherwise in most any weather the campus remains beautiful. Fortunately, buildings where your classes are will never be more than 10 minutes away from your dorm so you won't risk getting soaked in the rain if you have an umbrella, and it's a very pleasant walk.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is very unpredictable here. In the morning, it can be very cold, and then in the afternoon there is a drastic change and it is warm (and we all regret wearing thermals for that day). The rain can be a pain. Sometimes classes for the day get cancelled because of inclement weather, and the worst time was when school got cancelled for a week because of the weather and we did not want our professors or off-campus students to drive in the dangerous weather.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Very hot and cold. Upwards of 90 at the hottest point and may have reached 0 at the coldest point of the winter. Prone to change unexpectedly. However, fall and spring are very beautiful times of the year when the weather is between the two extremes. Typical Southeast weather.

5 College Junior

Weather: we have great weather and the campus looks beautiful in all seasons

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Its fairly warm compared to where I'm from, and I really enjoy getting to wear spring clothes longer and study outdoors more. The winters can get cold though.

There are definitely four seasons in Birmingham. This year, however, autumn did not seem to come until November. December was quite chilly, but nothing jeans and a jacket could not fix. January and February brought several snow days, in which students attacked each other with snowballs and slid down hills on whatever they could find that would function as a sled. Laundry baskets, mattresses, and large container lids seemed to work nicely.

Whenever the weather is sunny and warm, students flock to the quad to relax and do homework, play Frisbee, strum guitars, or simply soak up the sun. Some local students even bring their dogs to play with and train, while animal-lovers look on and smile. The spring semester, minus cold January and February, consists of these days very frequently. With numerous trees and beautiful flowers dotting campus, squirrels, chipmunks, and songbirds also emerge to enjoy such days. Of course, there are rainy days, as well, and these are the times when light jackets and colorful umbrellas make their appearances. Puddles are everywhere during these times, so rain boots are a must, unless one does not mind wet feet. Thunderstorms rarely accompany the wet weather, so it is usually safe to go outside and dance in the rain, even when one does not have a specific destination in mind.
