4 College Junior

Weather: Well, it's Florida. It's hot outside, but the classrooms are cool. There's a pool on campus. There are plenty of beaches and springs an hour or two away. When it is the season for almost daily rain, its not a problem. Most of the campus is connected by a covered walkway, though the sidewalks do sometimes flood slightly, so wear sandals and shorts.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Hot weather in the beginning of the year, but it does actually get cold during January/February so make sure to bring winter clothes. Other than that, it's mostly great weather, sometimes humid, and rain is very random. One minute it can be pouring and the next minute, it's sunny.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Florida is great at times, but other times it rains and storms frequently.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: It is nice 90% of the time. There is usually sun and it hardly stays cold for long. The summers a little bit much, but if you hate the cold you'll love it.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida. And Lakeland. Weather is great but it could rain any day. Most of the time students are outside but if it does rain we find things to do inside, like go to the wellness center and play sports

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Be ready for warm weather when considering Florida Southern College. You can expect typical Florida weather from about May to October. This includes warm mornings that turn into hot temperatures around mid-day, then rain in the afternoon to cool things down. Don't worry, though! The rain lasts for maybe an hour at the most. Then, there are clear skies for a moderately warm night. Because of all the rain, expect very humid summer days.

The temperatures start to drop around October, but there is the chance that it won't get cold until December. During the winter, the weather is chilly, but not nearly as cold as other parts of the United States. Don't expect any chance of snow, but there are the occasional dips into the 20s at night. Starting in June and ending in November, hurricane season does have the possibility of affecting Florida Southern College. Depending on the strength of the storm, the weather can range from days of light rainfall and clouds to heavy rainfall and high velocity winds. There are not very noticeable weather changes from season to season generally in Florida. However, the further north you are, the colder the winters. Similarly, the further south you are, the warmer the summers.
