4 College Freshman

Weather: It is never too hot and always cold year round. The weather is amazing, it is san francisco.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Weather is mostly sunny and actually in a drought this year. Day by day is fairly consistent but during the day the weather can vary greatly

2 College Freshman

Weather: Other than the occasional sunny days where everyone can be found either at the park or beach basking in what few bright days we have, the weather is awful. It is always foggy and cold.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: San Francisco is a crazy mistress, but living on campus, you can make the most of the unpredictable weather. It's generally moderate to chilly, but there are hardly seasons, so we get a lot of sun despite the temporary fog that is pretty regular. But, I must say NEVER just look outside and assume what it feels like, or that it will stay that way. This weather is ideal for the fashionable, as you can layer it up, or change into several outfits per day, turning campus into your runway.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Lots of wind. But usually mild temperatures.

It was Mark Twain who was credited with saying, "The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco." And if he did, he was absolutely correct. Summer and winter are two sides of the same coin in the "City by the Bay," with a bone-chilling August, a red-hot October, and a rainy February. It has rarely ever snowed in San Francisco. Instead, winter is met with cold, blustery rain on occasion. The only predictable thing about San Francisco's weather is its unpredictability. Even in an otherwise freezing summer, temperatures can still reach a sweltering 100 F. Dressing in layers is the best way to be prepared because while most days are mild, the temperature can change quite quickly.

The fall semester often begins with lots of sunny, clear days, in which it's best to prepare a wardrobe of shorts and open-toe shoes. Scantily clad students can be found throughout campus in the first few weeks of the school year, and then not until after the rainy winter season has passed. Fog frequently engulfs the city, but usually it passes within a few hours. If you wear light layers, you’ll always be prepared.
