4 College Junior

Weather: Southern California weather is amazing! Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather is great throughout the year

5 College Freshman

Weather: AMAZING WEATHER. It is mostly always sunny here. Very very happy weather in California. When the weather is nice it brings the students together because they are all outside and enjoying the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Its mostly sunny and warm, which I love.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's always sunny in Orange, California. References aside, it basically has fantastic weather all year round. Sunny when it needs to be, hardly rainy--and when it is, it rarely pours. Some days are colder than others, but not unbearable by any means.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at Chapman University have a sun-kissed glow year-round. The sun beats down at a sweltering 90+ degrees in August and September, and students can usually be found at one of the four nearby beaches. By the end of October, while most U.S. college students are sipping hot cocoa by the fire, Chapman students are still making the most of their swimsuits and surfboards.

It begins to get cooler in December, but the word "cold" in California is used to refer to temperatures between 45 and 60 degrees. It rains two to three times a year, and out-of-state students dance for joy, while California natives hibernate in their homes. Beach excursions are officially on hold in February and March, the coldest months of the year. Chapman women begin pairing their summer dresses and skirts with leggings and boots for the breezy winter evenings. But, by the middle of April, the sun reappears in full force, and Chapman students hit the waves once more.
