3 College Freshman

Weather: It is winter for more than half the time you are here at school. The winter is brutally cold and long, the wind is whipping and the daily climate is unpredictable. As the campus is fairly large, it can be a pain to walk to classes in the cold, but there is an underground tunnel and a bus system that is incredibly helpful and easy to use. There are tons of activities to participate in year round despite the weather and there are plenty of mountains and ski/board pass deals offered through the school.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The winters are long and cold - if you like skiing it's fantastic. But it does seem a bit gray after a while. The spring and fall are short but wonderfully pleasant! Not too hot, and after winter it's certainly not too cold!

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It is the best of both worlds. If you like your hair to be perfect, DONT COME HERE!! It is windy as all holy hell. It can hit extreme colds and winds that you would never think possible, but it is also beautiful at times. When its beautiful, it is the kind of wonderful weather you could only dream of.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I enjoy the cold so the long winter did not effect my experience much at all. IT made for a beautiful landscape.

3 College Senior

Weather: Winters are cold but beautiful and the fall is incredible with the perfect temperature.

The weather here is amazing . . . wait, no, it’s terrible . . . er, actually, the weather in Vermont is anything but predictable. That’s why most Vermonters will give you the age-old adage, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” This is a state where April showers often come in May, and winter doesn't appear in late December, but anywhere between October and Thanksgiving. As far as clothes go, come prepared. Vermont can have simply wonderful weather, but it can also quickly turn dismal. Think of living in a place with temperatures ranging from 15 degrees below zero—not including wind chill—up to the 90s, not accounting for humidity. And don’t forget to bring some sort of boot for snow.

Some students love it, some hate it, but in actuality, it is the whole of this love-hate relationship that describes student’s feelings about the weather. People who live to ski are thrilled that Vermont has some of the best in the east. Those who are into hiking appreciate the colorful splashes of leaves in the autumn and the vibrant flowers in spring. And for the rest who enjoy water sports, Vermont also has sweltering hot and humid summers. There is indeed a little taste of everything for everybody.
