Indiana’s weather is unpredictable—all four seasons visit the state, but it is hard to tell at what time they will visit. Looking at the bigger picture, the weather patterns are fairly consistent, but there is always going to be that cold day in July or warm day in October that throws everyone off. Students should just be prepared for any type of weather situation. Precipitation is common during every season, so bringing boots and sweaters that will keep you warm during a snowstorm would be wise. Also, keeping an umbrella handy is always a good idea.
