3 College Sophomore

Weather: playing sports is tough but it is Maine!

1 College Sophomore

Weather: Winter is the worst, the cold temperatures and the snow during the cold winter months really put a burden on going to college in Maine.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is beautiful, there are activities for any type of weather! The staff takes care of the walkways when it is snowing outside. There are snow protocols to plow and have good space.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It seems to be always raining here, especially on the weekends or when something is planned for outside.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Pretty Alright for Maine – It's not as bad as everyone thinks a school in Maine is. Coming from Boston, it's pretty much the same, just a little more snow and colder by a few degrees. If you're from New England, don't think that going to school in Maine is going to be something different weather wise. There are some nice days when people go out to tan and make bootleg water slides that look like they hurt, but the weather is really alright. There's the occasional international student with thick long sleeves on a nice Spring day or a tank top and shorts on during winter, but it's all good.

Thomas College is in Maine, so the winters are cold, and a lot of snow is usually in the forecast. But the warm spring and summer temperatures make up for it! In 2009-10, Waterville had a very wet, rainy, and rather warm winter, but in the past, the area has received two or more feet of snow in one storm alone. But all this snow makes for great skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, and sledding.

The fall here is a popular time on campus because the temperatures are warm enough to participate in multiple outdoor activities during the day and in the evening. Intramural sports are popular in the fall too because they can be played inside or out. So, overall, it is mostly the winter you have to worry about, but take advantage of it! Maine has some great skiing.
