The weather in New Rochelle does not bring many complaints from the student body and is actually one of the advantages of coming to Iona. The school goes through four seasons, and the surrounding areas provide a scenic setting for each month. The school year does start off hot and humid, but it cools off in the fall for comfortable weather. Recently, the winter has not been much of a problem, though, since it has been relatively mild. If it does snow in the area, morning classes either get canceled or classes for the whole day are canceled. It is really easy for this to happen because New Rochelle is very cautious when it comes to even the smallest amount of snow.
It would be a good idea to bring an umbrella for days when it rains. Although it does not rain a lot, when it rains, it pours, and it is not fun walking to class soaked. Students should be sure to plan accordingly for clothing, as throughout the school year the seasons will change and the necessary clothes will definitely be needed to stay healthy.
