3 College Freshman

Weather: The snow this year has been terrible! But that's what you get in Michigan, I have lived here for all my life so I was expecting it. The long walks in the snow is what is bad.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: We know that we live in Michigan, and because of that our university to use the BEST resources to make sure that we are safe to go to class when the weather is bad. If you guys won't cancel when there's 3 feet of snow outside, then those sidewalks and streets should be immaculate if they expect us to go to class.

Weather: Every season in Kalamazoo is great EXCEPT WINTER. That may be biased because it's my least favorite season, but at the beginning of the Spring semester, classes were cancelled two days in a row then a couple more times throughout Winter.

1 College Freshman

Weather: This year the winter weather has been horrible. We have had to shut down school three times. I think that it should have been shut down more than that but they didn't want to have the classes running through the summer. the bus system is very convent during this horrible weather. They even add extra buses to the system because they know hoe bad the weather is. So they do care and try and accommodate to the situations at hand.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather, especially in the winter, has been rough. It is very cold and has been snowing and a blizzard almost everyday. It is hard to ride the busses to class because they are packed, but it is way to cold to walk.

At Western, the fall and spring semesters have one thing in common: snow. Half of the fall semester and half of the spring semester are spent covered in snow. Rain is also a big part of the area, when it isn't snowing during the fall and winter months and even part of the spring months.

However, there is a plus: Western does an excellent job of making the sidewalks and walkways easily accessible and weatherproof. So if you're hoping for a class cancelation due to the weather, don't bet on it. Snow days are very, very rare.
