4 College Junior

Weather: During the spring, you never know if it's going to rain, or be 30 degrees out. The apartments are so far away, that if you don't drive to class, you could get drenched on the way back in an unexpected shower.

4 College Senior

Weather: Residing in the south, my school faces severe weather upon occasion. Classes ARE cancelled when things seem dangerous. People live on campus and off. Commuter students are kept in mind at this school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you've ever heard the phrase "it's so hot you could fry an egg on the pavement," then chances are you've heard someone talking about the weather in the South. Birmingham is no exception, because it gets its fair share of the Southern heat. Fortunately, this means that there is ample time to be involved with the outdoors or catch up on your tan before the weather gets too cold. By the time the heat does cool down, it's nearly Thanksgiving, so most students are advised to bring lots of versatile clothes to make it through the fall. If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas, unfortunately, Birmingham is not the place to fulfill those dreams. It only snows once in a blue moon in the `Ham, and even if it does, it probably won't stick to the ground. Also, if you've never experienced a hurricane, one or two of them may become a part of your college experience. Chalk it up to the semi-tropical climate and our proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Another very helpful item of clothing to bring would be a raincoat, seeing as it rains fairly often in Birmingham. Also, Southern is located on the `Hilltop,' one of the highest peaks in the city, so there's a fair amount of wind to deal with, as well. Sunny skies and cool breezes are the norm for BSC, which is usually a pleasant reprieve from the cold indoor climates of the classrooms.
