Weather: Ohio is known for its snow and rain for a reason. Mount Union has a beautiful campus, but Ohio does get a lot of rain.

Weather: It is your typical Ohio weather. It can be sunny and 50 degrees one day, and 20 and snowing the next.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It is pretty average weather here.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Winter is cold and snowy and the weather is constantly changing.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I never lived in the snow so it is a big difference for me but I love it so far. The snow does get annoying at times while trying to walk through it especially when the sidewalks aren't completely clean and become slippery. If you are having a bad day I do suggest watching people slip from a window for a good laugh.

Mount Union goes through all four seasons in a typical school year. Classes start in August, and temperatures hover around 80 degrees for the first few weeks, so it's a good idea to bring a fan if your residence hall doesn't have air conditioning. Campus is most beautiful during the fall, when temperatures jump around from the upper 50s to low 70s and the leaves change colors on the trees. Winter is Mount Union's longest and most unpredictable season. It's not unusual to see snow as early as November and as late as April, but temperatures fluctuate so much that sleet and freezing rain are also common. Classes are seldom canceled, though, so be prepared to walk and bring a warm winter coat, gloves or mittens, and maybe a pair of boots. Spring settles in around April and tends to be rainy, with temperatures ranging between the 40s and 60s.

Student opinions on the weather are as unpredictable as the weather itself. Some find the frequent precipitation and cold or hot temperatures absolutely miserable and try to avoid the elements at all costs. Others look for any excuse to get out and play—these are the people you'll find holding an impromptu snowball fight on the way to class or playing a muddy game of kickball in the rain. Just keep in mind that this is Ohio, and if you think the weather's terrible, give it a day or even just a few hours—chances are, it will change.
