3 College Freshman

Weather: My campus does not close for anything, other campuses like WCU has snow days but we dont.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Since I live only about forty minutes from school, the weather there is pretty much the same as the weather at home. When there's an emergency, like with Hurricane Sandy, they take action and warn everyone to go home. Students who couldn't go home were very well taken care of.

The campus looks awesome after a snowstorm!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It gets cold, but never really snows hard. We had classes cancelled for Hurricane Sandy, but other than that, classes are NEVER cancelled campus wide. The fall does last longer here than in my home New England and the spring definitely comes sooner. When the weather is nice, campus sure is beautiful and everyone's outside. Bad weather isn't really that big of an issue because everything on campus is so close together. If its cold or gross out, you don't have to walk far to get where you're going.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's not distracting from work because everyone lives on campus, but it's super depressing. A lot of seasonal depression.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: All the Seasons – It's Pennsylvania, so you experience all of the seasons here. This past year, we had a very mild winter and a very warm spring, which was nice, but there's no guarantee that'll happen again. Also, we had a lot of rain this year.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The weather in Collegeville runs the full gamut of seasons. The fall is cooler, with leaves changing to brilliant and dazzling colors. Winters are cold with varying amounts of snow. Spring brings plenty of rain and fluctuating temperatures, and summers are very hot and stifling. Students from places like Buffalo or Alaska won't think there is that much snow, and students from Florida or Arizona might not find the summers to be that hot in comparison, but there are definitely four seasons here. And students should come prepared for all of them—boots, gloves, and heavy coats for the winter and light clothing for the spring and summer months. Having an umbrella or poncho is recommended as there can be some heavy storms.

A variety of sporting and outdoor activities can be found year-round because of the four seasons. There is a mountain nearby where students can go skiing or snow-tubing during the winter, and the Perkiomen Trail is a great place to spend a day hiking when the temperatures warm up. What's even better is that the weather never really becomes a serious issue. The school rarely closes for classes due to snow since most students live on campus and walk to class anyway. The weather is a pleasant aspect of Ursinus—colorful falls, snowy winters, budding springs, and hot summers.
