3 College Freshman

Weather: Cold and hot whether tend to keep me indoors. It can get too hot or too cold way too easily in Philly so whenever that happens everyone hangs around indoors and it can get kind of crowded and harder to find good lunch/study spots. When there is good weather though, everyone is outside so enjoying the outdoors then isn't the most pleasant either

3 College Senior

Weather: I mean if it is raining i think no one wants to go anywhere

3 College Freshman

Weather: winter is bad but summer is great

5 College Junior

Weather: The weather here is amazing in the spring and summer. It gets very warm considering it close to the beaches. Having nice and warm weather on campus brings a lot of students outdoors to just sit outside and study.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It rains quite a bit in Philadelphia, but for the most part, it's absolutely beautiful on campus when it's all sunny! Especially when the days are going by and the stress of school begins, the beauty of Philadelphia definitely helps lighten me up!

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The weather in Philadelphia is normal. It is cold in the winter months, hot in the summer months—basically you get all four seasons. Students are sure to pack extra gloves, umbrellas, and scarves because Temple doesn’t close in cases of snowstorms, hail, or hurricane weather. Students rely on the thermal underwear that moms have been trying for years to get them to wear. On the bright side, the school has been known to close if they know the teachers aren’t going to be able to come to class due to ice and the occasional blizzard. In this case, students go out and make snow angels or have snowball fights. It almost seems festive until the next morning, when the streets get plowed, and you have to find a way to get to class.

Most students find that it is easy to adjust to the weather, even if they are from the South where it’s warm or the Midwest where it’s windy or rainy. There isn’t a severe case of bad allergens due to pollen or dust particles in Philadelphia. The usual secondhand smoke and grass is all that you might encounter at Temple. Some students with really sensitive allergies have a reaction to the general air quality because Philly is a very busy city, with many factories and a lot of pollution. Many students also comment on how quickly people start showing some skin as soon as the sun warms the air. But beware: the weather is known for having brief spurts of pleasant temperatures before turning back into a grisly winter. Philadelphia is known for its horrendous snow removal, so if you are a commuter, the odds of you being able to get to school in the snow are very slim.
