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!
