2 College Sophomore

Weather: JSU tends to not cancel school during bad weather. This year, we had a terrible snow storm, and JSU did not cancel classes until I was already stuck on campus. I was stranded for 4 hours in a parking lot until I was able to flag someone down to help me. After this incident, JSU now cancels classes at any chance of heavy snow, which is how it should be.

Weather: One day it will be blazing hot, the next it will be cold, the next may be raining. Humidity is horrible sometimes but Summer time is awesome!

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather can get moody at times, but when you dress properly it's enjoyable. Watch out in the summers, though- it's Alabama. It can get pretty damned hot sometimes.

Weather: On campus is typical Alabama weather. Early fall it is hot and the humidity is awful. The few weeks of actual fall are beautiful. Winter is not that bad maybe 30 degrees is the coldest it will get. Spring is beautiful!

Weather: The weather on the campus of Jacksonville State is quite unpredictable. Coming from Georgia, the Alabama weather is different. One day it may be sunny and 70 degrees, and another it could be rainy and 40 degrees. The weather keeps me guessing every day.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Once you get accepted to JSU and decide to make Jacksonville your new home away from home, there is only one thing left to do: pack. Overall, the weather is pretty balanced. Keep in mind that you don’t need to bring clothes for every season all at once. If you plan to go home during breaks, you can easily trade your T-shirts for sweaters or vice versa.

During the fall months, the coolest days will be in the high 50s, and the warmest days will be in the low 80s. A light jacket, T-shirts, and jeans work nicely for this time of year. In December and January, you can expect the coolest days to be in the low 30s and the warmest days to be in the mid-50s. This means that sweaters, jackets, and whatever else you need to keep warm are a must, especially since you will be walking around on campus quite a bit. 

Things begin to warm up a bit February through April. Expect the coolest days to be in the low 40s and the warmest days to be in the mid-70s. Layers are best for this time of year because a day that starts off in the low 50s could reach the mid-70s by lunchtime. Also, you can expect quite a bit of rain during these months, so bring an umbrella and rain boots.

From May through August, you will begin to feel the full effects of living in the south. The coolest days will be in the upper 60s and the hottest days will be over 100 degrees. Staying cool is essential, not only for your comfort but for your heath as well. No worries though, kiddos. When the heat gets to be too much, just swing by Stephenson Hall and go for a swim in the Olympic-size swimming pool.
