1 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is constantly changing.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Here in Lexington, KY, the weather seems to be bipolar because one second the weather can be gorgeous one day and then the next day the weather could totally change and throw everything off.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The ice storms make it hard to get around in the winter as well as the heavy rain. However when it's nice outside it's absolutely beautiful!

3 College Student

Weather: All over the place. It was 75 and sunny one day and snowing the next day

Plan on bringing clothes for four distinct seasons of weather and a lot of rain. Every few years, a horrible ice storm hits Lexington and knocks out power and cancels classes. Short of a natural disaster, classes will be in session. Be prepared for unpredictable weather and keep an umbrella handy.

Be careful walking past Patterson Office Tower if you are carrying papers or an umbrella, because the building creates a wind tunnel that could rip your clothes off. Be sure your backpack is waterproof and get some good rain boots for the spring showers that come every year.

Did You Know?
  • A monumental ice storm knocked out power to many Lexington neighborhoods in 2003 and caused classes to be cancelled for a week. Students still share pictures and discuss the horrors of being without power and lectures for so long (right).
  • A popular saying among students is "If you don't like the weather, wait five minues!" Things can change from the time you enter a class to the time you leave. Be prepared!
