Weather: Winter can be really, brutally cold. Once Spring hits, the weather is gorgeous, but in the summer it can be extremely humid because it is by the water.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Here in New York we go through all four seasons. During the winter it can be very cold but they do a great job clearing the snow and putting salt down. The spring it is beautiful on campus and most students hangout on "the stairs" having a catch, picnic, studying, or even just catching some sun. Summer can get humid and gross. Fall it is always nice to walk around because it is not too cold and not too hot. When it gets windy is when it is the worst. The school acts like a wind tunnel so it can get pretty bad.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Spring is AMAZING! Everyone chills out on Staller Steps and just has a good time, skipping classes and enjoying the great weather. Winter sucks horribly though. It's windy and we often have a ton of crazy snow storms that shut down the campus and most of Long Island for days at a time. If you're lucky we even get hurricanes.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: This year there was way too much snow.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's a little chilly but nonetheless manageable. There are multiple snow storms which may result in snow days.

When the fall semester begins, the leaves on the trees are just starting to turn red and orange, it is a temperate sixty to seventy degrees out, and there are still a few people with short sleeves on. This is the time of year when nature looks its best on campus. By the end of that semester, sometimes, the snow has piled up so high that people don't know if they will return from class and find their car hidden under the snow banks. Winds gust past the face, and leave streaks of tears, as one battles up the Zebra Path to get into the library. People bundled in thick coats and heavy bags knock into each other as they file into the vestibule, elevator, or classroom. Sometimes the clear blue sky results in a glare that makes it hard to see; and other times the grey clouds make for an overcast sky, and students just don't want to see.

When the spring comes, everyone is more than excited. It is not unusual to see students running around in shorts on campus when it's still only 45 degrees out. The fountain spurts water for all to enjoy the light spray in the air, and tank tops and sunglasses make their appearance. Well, okay, people still need the windbreakers-this is still
Stony Brook.
