4 College Freshman

Weather: Usually very nice, but sometimes rainy or cloudy

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's freezing in the winter and really sticky and humid in the beginning of the year up until about October, but fall and spring on campus are beautiful, especially spring with the cherry blossoms.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Winters can be cold and seem long. Summer is hot, pretty humid. When spring comes around you appreciate it that much more.

3 College Freshman

Weather: This year we have had 8 snow days!!! I am from the area and can say the weather is not usually this bad, it's just been a rough year. When it is cold, the walk to class is brutal.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Where I'm from has VERY different weather than Villanova or the East Coast in general. I don't have too many problems with it, but I'm also told that this winter was kind of an aberration. We had eight snow days (last year we didn't have any, the year before only one or two), and lost power for a few days along with most of Philadelphia/the suburbs of Philadelphia.

Keep in mind that while all of the dorms have heat (thank God), but not all of them have air conditioning, and the summers are hot and humid.

The weather is typical of any mid-Atlantic state. Fall and spring are always nice and sunny with a light breeze, and the temperatures are in the upper 50s to mid-60s. Winters get cold for almost anyone’s standards, and at least one big snowstorm occurs—but that usually turns into more fun than most parties because you’re guaranteed to see makeshift sleds out of pizza boxes and trays, not to mention snowball fights and snowmen. The only time it’s really hot is during orientation, and unless you are in the older dorms, there is always air-conditioning.

If you are having trouble packing for school, use vacation breaks to your advantage. When you first arrive, shorts and T-shirts are a must, as it can be hot. However, during fall break, start to bring summer clothes home and fill your school closet with warmer clothes, light sweaters, and windbreakers. Over Thanksgiving break, get your winter wardrobe because it gets cold pretty quickly and doesn’t let up until spring break. That’s a perfect time to start bringing back warmer clothes, and by Easter break, you should be back to where you started. Some good ideas are waterproof boots for the rain and snow, as well as a warm jacket and a good pair of gloves.
