Weather: I would be much happier if the winter here is just one month shorter than it usually is. Snow in March is ridiculous! Other than that, autumn foliage and even the first snow in November/December is beautiful.

Weather: The weather between this year and last year has been dramatically different, and it is also very different from season to season. It is important to have good rain gear if you want to go to Bryn Mawr because it either storms or it does not rain at all. Snow varies, but it can come at unexpected times. For instance, it snowed on the first day of Spring Break in 2013! This year, the spring and fall have been pretty mild in terms of temperature, but the winter seems to be coming in harshly, and the summer was brutally hot. The spring and fall are beautiful, but winter can be rough at times. I think it embodies the typical northeastern seasonal change in areas far from water. I am from New York so I am used to this weather, but for others who live in more stable climates, it can be a shock. No one likes the humidity.

Weather: The dorms do not have A/C, and they get SO hot and SO humid during the summer. (At one point my dorm was 90 degrees).

It also rains a whole bunch and snows heavily. Luckily, it's such a small campus that it isn't all that bad. However, if you have to walk into town it can be a real bitch.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Day to day weather changes can be as drastic as the season to season changes, so you will face virtually any kind of weather at any time of year. Some years, summer lasts until late October, and other years, the first snow comes before Thanksgiving. We're kind of like Mother Nature's little freak experiment. The snowfall is lighter than the rest of the Northeast. When it snowed two feet last year, they closed school for two days until they could get plows in to clear the streets. Rainstorms are much more frequent than snowstorms. Philadelphia is also known for the impressive electrical storms that occur during all seasons. You will need clothes for all weather and layers for all but the stickiest summer humidity. Your layers will be handy in the fall when temperatures are erratic and again in the spring.

The dark of winter requires all the warm gear you have, but since all buildings are heated during that time, lighter clothes underneath your sweaters and winter coat will make you more comfortable during class. Waterproof boots will get you through the rain and muddy snow that covers campus for weeks after the white stuff has melted.
