4 College Freshman

Weather: I love the fact that I get to expirience all 4 seasons. Its enchanting in the winter, crispy in the fall, lovely in the spring, and amazing in the summer!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: most of the time if the weather is bad the campus will close, but not always. I used to commute from an hour away and on occasion I would have to drive in bad conditions to make it to class because for labs you are not able to miss one

4 College Sophomore

Weather: They care about the commuters when roads are really bad they close the school

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The Fall season is my favorite season and makes the campus a beautiful pot of gold and amber. The school is an arboretum and the grounds are taken excellent care of. I love taking time to sit in the gazebo in the colder weather and read a book with the sunshine shooting rays upon me. Friends and I take photography shots of the beautiful leaves.

The Winter season has the campus relatively peaceful. Students LOVE sledding down Moore Hill on cafeteria trays- it's a tradition! Students build snowmen at the dorms and hold snowball fights on the quad. It's wonderful. Parking gets iffy when it comes to snow storms, but especially if you live on campus, getting to class is no problem!

In the spring, glorious flowers bloom. The grounds keeping staff continually plants new flowers as the season approaches summer. The campus is never without beauty. We can get lots of rain and it may be a bummer if you have to walk to class and you're not near it, but it isn't a bad experience.

3 College Junior

Weather: Typical crazy Pennsylvania weather. It has it moments but overall not bad.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Because Cedar Crest is located in Eastern Pennsylvania, there are definitely four seasons every year. When students arrive in the fall, it's often still very warm, so T-shirts and jeans or shorts are standard during the first month or so of class. Depending on the year, it starts to get cold in October or November, and by December, fleece, wool, or down coats are a necessity. You generally don't have to break out the snow boots until after winter break. There will usually be snow through January and February, and it's important to be careful when traveling off campus; Cedar Crest does a great job of keeping its roads clear, but not all of the neighborhoods around are as fast or as efficient. 

When it finally starts to warm up again in March or April, you'll be grateful for the change—even the April showers that never seem to stop! One of the best things about Cedar Crest in the spring (or fall) is the trees; April brings the cherry blossoms, and October is the best month for red and orange leaves.
