North Carolina weather is what draws many people to High Point. The weather is wonderful because it’s warm and sunny 90 percent of the time. It’s Southern enough to reap the benefits of the warm weather, but it still has changes in seasons, which gives campus life some variety. The longest seasons are definitely spring and summer. It will generally start getting warm on campus in March and will stay warm until early to mid-November. High Point experiences fall and winter, as well, but they are much shorter than if you went to school in the Northeast.
The unusual thing about weather in North Carolina is how quickly it changes. It can be thunderstorming in the morning on your way to class, and by the time you get out, it’s sunny and a perfect day for the pool. Another thing students have to adjust to is tornado warnings and watches. These occur generally during the fall and spring, and for students who come from areas of the country where tornados aren’t prevalent, it can take some getting used to. Overall, North Carolina weather is what brings many students to the University, and it's definitely a perk of going to school there.
