1 College Senior

Weather: Its windy and holy s*** it seems to never stop raining

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's typical east coast weather--this past winter was much worse than past have been. The weather doesn't stop students from going out or enjoying themselves, even if it may move parts of Springfest indoors.

2 College Freshman

Weather: But not the bad, you could still go to class.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It rains more than average, but the weather is generally nice. It is a very windy campus, though, not too bad when you are in the middle of campus with buildings to block the wind.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Generally, it's pretty nice here, but it does rain an awful lot and campus has a tendency to flood.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Gettysburg weather is not quite the same as DC weather, not quite the same as Baltimore weather, and not quite the same as Harrisburg weather, either. The campus is located in a unique setting in the Mid-Atlantic Chesapeake Bay Watershed. It can get very hot and humid in the summer and equally cold in the winter. Precipitation levels tend to be high year round.

Gettysburg is susceptible to heavy snowstorms and strong thunderstorms. It is in a valley, which means that it is almost always windy, which helps cool things off in the summer, but means that the wind chill is bitter in the winter. Of course, this doesn't preclude the possibility that it will remain 50 degrees and cloudy for weeks at a time-a state to which Gettysburg is prone, particularly in autumn and spring. Basically, all things considered, it is best to come to Gettysburg prepared for everything. Bring a raincoat, an umbrella, a winter coat, a light jacket, a wool hat, and sunglasses. You'll probably use them all.
