3 College Sophomore

Weather: They do not cancel when they should but they are improving this.

3 College Junior

Weather: Texas weather is always unpredictable.

2 College Junior

Weather: It's Texas. It might be 80 degrees one day and it could be snowing by the next morning.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Few bad winter days. Hot most of the time.

3 College Freshman

Weather: When it warms up it can be very pleasant in the spring, august is hot, return to fall is nice. If you are from Houston or southern states/areas, you will not understand the weather in the winter. The moist air + wind bites into your clothes and can be unbearably chilly. Some northern folks say its nothing... Which is crazy talk for me, being from Houston. The good days are when the cold has something to show for and it snows and school is cancelled, should happen once or twice per year. This review may be skewed as it is very cold outside right now... Can't wait for spring.

UTD students, Dallas-born and international alike, maintain a love/hate relationship with the weather in Dallas. The "love" part, however, prevails for the better part of the year, and is only replaced by discontent when summer takes over from May to September, which includes only two months of the fall and spring semester, so students have plenty to rejoice about when they compare the weather here to that of any other places up north.

That being said, North Texas’ summer is truly unforgiving. The temperature can reach and stay at 110 F for weeks on end, without a drop of rain to ease it. This misery is typical of August and September, and sometimes even carries over to October. When fall comes, however, life on campus blossoms. The sun, wind, temperature, and even rain are all just right, and, by Halloween, people have already forgotten how they nearly died of heat just weeks before. Believe it or not, there has been snow in Dallas; however, it’s always risky to bet on a snowy winter. If you are one of those snow lovers, there’s still a bright side to it: Legend has it that any amount of snow or ice on campus can easily translate into an extra week or two of winter break. (Talk about snowphobia!) The transition into spring in March is pleasant yet subtle, often recognized only by the start of outdoors intramural tournaments.
