3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The snow really gets us and there is some issue every year with plowing. But other than that, I think the mountains are the perfect view for campus walking.

3 College Senior

Weather: It is hard being a commuter in the winter time because the roads will get really slick. It's also a pain to walk in the snow to each class I have throughout campus.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Its great during the summer and provides a killer ski season in the winter.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: January is cold, weather patterns are really weird in the spring. 70's one week, snowing the next. But otherwise, it's fantastic. Air pollution is a problem during the winter.

5 College Freshman

Weather: During the winter months the weather has not been bad enough that I have had to ware boots to walk from the parking lot to my classes. The summer is going to be a hot one though. I am not looking forward to the heat.

There is a saying in Utah about the weather: "if you don't like the weather in Utah, just wait five minutes!" Storms do not last very long in Utah, and the weather is usually pretty mild. Typically, Salt Lake City has very warm summers and pretty cold winters. The great thing is that the warm summers and cold winters are often broken up by summer showers and beautiful winter days. Both are bearable and are actually quite nice changes. The area has beautiful springs and summers, and it is truly an amazing climate. One quickly forgets that Salt Lake City is in a desert! 

If you are into outdoor recreation, than the weather in Salt Lake City provides a welcome change of scenery and activity. Utah is a place of four seasons, so it would behoove students to bring a wide variety of clothes with them. Also, when you start meeting people here, you will want to start engaging in some of the fun activities in which they participate. As far as the pollution goes, Utah has some of the worst air in the nation some days and also some of the best air other days. It's an interesting phenomenon. However, the great thing is that students have the mountains just 20 minutes away, where they can always get some fresh air.
