Weather: The fall is amazing! But winter is crazy. The weather is bipolar. Some days are nicer than others.It snowed so much over the course of a few days that it reached my thighs in some places. i suggest taking afternoon classes as opposed to morning because when the weather is bad the roads aren't plowed until later. Take note that rain boots are essential!

3 College Freshman

Weather: In the fall and spring and fall it's beautiful. But it does snow and rain a lott you just have t deal with it. If you are not from upstate you will find it pretty cold but you do get used to it a bit.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The weather in Fredonia can be beautiful one day to downright nasty the next. Because the weather is extremely moody and can change in an instant, students take advantage of the sunshine when it's nice out. In the late summer and early fall months, the weather is usually warm and sunny. During this time, the campus grounds are usually filled with students soaking up the last few rays of sunshine, knowing that the horrible grey winter months are just days away.

When winter hits, usually in early November, it's every man for himself. Since Fredonia is located just a few miles away from Lake Erie, the winters are almost unbearable. The wind that comes off the lake is so powerful that it has been known to almost knock students off of their feet. The winter storms are also brutal, and snow builds up very quickly. However, if you can survive the harsh winter months, then you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful spring and early summer months in Fredonia. Students know that spring has sprung when the cherry trees blossom. During the end of the spring semester, the campus comes back to life, and students rush outside to enjoy the long-lost sunshine. During these last weeks, there is hardly a day when there aren’t students outside laying on the grassy lawns studying, reading, or just relaxing with friends.
