1 College Freshman

Weather: Fargo was given the title of "worst weather" or something along those lines last year, and it is true. There is snow on the ground basically during the entire academic year.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It's pretty cold, but it is manageable if you are from the Midwest.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It gets really cold, like insanely so, where you don't even want to go outside.

3 College Junior

Weather: It depends- if you're from Minnesota, you'll manage. If not.... it will take getting used to.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students arrive on campus in late August to roughly two weeks of stifling heat. During this time, box fans are abundant throughout the dorms that lack air conditioning. After that boiling beginning, the chilly fall weather familiar to many from northern cities arrives, rapidly changing the colors of the leaves. Then in mid-November, white flakes of snow begin to fall and make the campus their domain for four or five months of bleakness. 

Many students bundle up in large coats and fashionable scarves to quell the effects of a rampant and persistent wind on campus. Fortunately most, if not all, of the walks to buildings on campus are extremely short. The temperature will increase into slightly more bearable ranges toward the end of the academic year, but snow will persevere and might even remain on campus during the last day of finals. For incoming students—bring coats and other warm clothes, and stock up on Norwegian-knit sweaters to tackle the freezing winter temperatures. Also, do not forget a decent amount of light clothing because most time is spent in well-heated dormitories.
