4 College Freshman

Weather: Local weather rarely affects campus experience. Weather is typically good, not at any extreme (hot, cold, wet, etc.). All four seasons are distinct.

2 College Junior

Weather: The Winters are almost exclusively below freezing, sometimes below zero. And since Indiana has very little to show for in terms of hills or elevation difference, it can get very windy and the wind chills will dip below zero semi-regularly. The Falls are very nice and the end of the spring semester can be decent, but overall, weather is probably the worst part of Notre Dame

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's the Midwest, so the weather is going to be temperamental. The winters can be really cold, so bring cold weather gear.

3 College Freshman

Weather: If you come from the south or somewhere like California, the weather is going to be pretty difficult for you to adjust to. Our winters are pretty bad.

2 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather can make things a bit gloomy in January/February, but it is really easy to cut through buildings on the way to class to break up the time spent walking around outside. Campus buildings are not spaced too far away from each other, so you do not need to walk around outside for too long if you want to avoid it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Alex Barker
View all previous student authors

No matter how familiar they might be with cold weather, most Notre Dame students spend the winters covered in down jackets so thick that they can't put their arms down, and hats and scarves pulled so tightly that all you can see are eyes peering out into the snow.

However, one of the worst things about the seasons is the unpredictability. There will be days when it's beautiful, sunny, and warm, right next to days when you have to walk around bundled up and shivering. At least the spring thaw gives you something to look forward to. Until then, be ready with layers of clothing, a sturdy coat, and maybe even a sun lamp.
