4 College Freshman

Weather: Typical North Carolina weather...unpredictable but you get a little bit of every season.

1 College Junior

Weather: The weather here is so wishy washy.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Seasonal swings are going to happen. It's very hot and humid during late spring/summer/early fall, and can also be very cold and rainy during winter. I commute as I do not live on campus, so depending on how far I have to park from my classrooms, my exposure to weather and its effect on my campus experience is not epecially significant in a negative way.

3 College Junior

Weather: It depends on the season of course. When it is Winter it does snow so for safety reasons class does get cancelled. But when it is Spring or Summer, the weather is inviting and the spirit of the campus is warm and exciting!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Sometimes it is too hot and there are many trees which is a great deal, but when you have to walk across campus twice in one day when it is snowing or raining it is not fun. But I do enjoy observing others as they enjoy the green lawns and fun out in the yards.

North Carolina experiences all of the seasons, some more intensely than others. One thing you can always count on in this state is a sweltering summer; it usually starts getting hotter around mid-May. If you're not one for hot weather, be warned: The heat sticks around for a while. North Carolina experiences Indian summers almost every year, and hurricane season lasts until November. It has been known to be hot even into the middle of October, sometimes all the way to Halloween. With temperatures high for more than a quarter of the year, spring and summer tend to be mere afterthoughts. Naturally, it takes winter a while to get going, and this area rarely ever sees a white Christmas. If it snows at all during a year, it will usually happen in January and February. Adverse weather has been known to keep students out of class, but it is often due to icy road conditions and rarely lasts more than a couple days.

To stay covered all year, most students have wardrobes made up largely of various jeans and T-shirts. Shorts, Capris, and tank tops are common in the spring and summer, and some people even wear flip-flops year-round. A few good hooded sweatshirts and jackets should get you through the fall and most of winter, but you may also want to be prepared with a coat, scarf, and gloves as the wind can be pretty bitter. One must-have for all the seasons, though, is a sturdy umbrella. North Carolina isn't known for its rain, but you definitely don't want to have to walk across campus without some protection from a surprise shower.
