1 College Student

Weather: Rain, snow, sleet, -30 degree weather, if you're from somewhere that knows what the sun is, DO NOT ENTER

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The winter goes on FOREVER. That being said, the summer, fall, and spring are absolutely beautiful. Invest in a good parka and warm waterproof boots and you should be all right.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Today we started with thunder, then snow, then hail, and finally rain. Campus is a slushy mess.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is beautiful in the fall. I like when the snow begins to fall, but after awhile I don't want it around anymore. It's so cold to walk to class, everyone is sick of the winter weather.

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.
