2 College Sophomore

Weather: As a state, Michigan's weather is extremely unpredictable and Ann Arbor is very windy. In the fall the wind is obnoxious and rain can get blown sideways and the snow lasts quite a few months. So clothing for each specific season is necessary.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Ann Arbor is really nice when the weather is warm and fall is really pretty, but the winters can be absolutely brutal.

1 College Freshman

Weather: Michigan winters are tough if you're not used to them, especially when you're waiting at a bus stop for up to 15 minutes at a time. West coast and Southern kids probably hate it, but the weather doesn't keep Wolverines down.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Michigan. You'll find out.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: Michigan weather. It is extremely bi-polar and unpredictable.

At any time of the year, Michigan students experience unpredictable patterns of rain, snow, and sun. Though the winters are harsh, they're sandwiched between beautiful springs and autumns, where students frequent the campus lawns with picnic blankets and Frisbees. Michigan winters usually begin in November and endure all the way to the beginning of March. The cold weather hits hardest in December and January, skies often gray and wind speeds high. Well-adjusted students never leave home without dressing in a number of layers. Most students also invest in warm winter coats. In light of the unpredictable weather, the University does a remarkably good job at keeping the roads and sidewalks clear after snowstorms. Canceled classes due to weather are virtually unheard of. It's no wonder Michigan is shaped like a mitten—make sure you bring yours!

Did You Know?
The University of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus hasn't closed its doors for weather-related issues since 1978. University officials say it's because the campus is mostly residential, so students and faculty can make it to class, even if the roads are bad.
