3 College Sophomore

Weather: The Weather in El Paso, TX is very hot, but as a resident I am accustomed to this. I wear sunblock during the summer and always wear my sunglasses while walking to my classes. The weather does not affect my campus experience whatsoever, in fact I am able to enjoy my campus even more. I am able to workout freely outside and go to sporting events whenever I please. As long as I am staying hydrated, wearing sunblock and using light clothing.

1 College Junior

Weather: Extremly hot summer in the 100s degree F.

3 College Senior

Weather: The local weather consists of hot and dry days for almost the entire year. This makes the college experience a little harsh during summer sessions, but if you are an El Paso native it should be something that you are already adapted to.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: El Paso is a very dry and arid environment to live in. Despite the occasionally dust and wind, the sunshine is great.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Our campus is located in The Sun City, which means it is always extremely hot. Having to walk to your classes in the heat is hard, however my campus as a lot of trees and the buildings do offer good shade. When it rains, however, it is chaos. The streets over flowing with water and the only way out of there s by getting soaked.

West Texas has always had great weather. The summer usually gets hot and provides a nice tan for residents. Outdoor activities are best done in the evening, when temperatures begin to drop. Summer heat tends to stay in between 90 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Rain starts to slowly creep into the picture in June and becomes frequent by August. In contrast to the summer, the fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors when the sun shines brightly, with the cool air keeping it from becoming unbearable—perfect for football season and tailgating. Once winter comes around, temperatures average at 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

A thick coat is required for residents; however, students coming from the Northern or Northeastern part of the United States do not seem fazed by El Paso's weather, as they continue to wear shorts with sweaters. Snow is spontaneous in El Paso (the beginning of 2010 saw a number of snow days). Once winter ends, spring is beautiful, as new life begins to peek out and the picture begins to brighten up with cool temperatures and sunny days.
