3 College Junior

Weather: Winters can be long, snowy and cold, and spring can be rainy. But you get a little bit of all four seasons, and each season is really beautiful in Gambier!

3 College Freshman

Weather: I like how seasonal the weather is. You get a little bit of everything.

2 College Junior

Weather: It's Ohio so the weather is usually not very nice or changes quickly. This has very little effect on my classes though. When it is nice we have class outside, which I like.

Weather: The weather is not great, I was expecting a lot of snow and we've gotten maybe 5 real snows in 2 years. It rains a lot and is cloudy most of the time. It is only warm during the first 3 weeks and last 3 weeks of school. It also sucks when you don't have AC in your room...

Weather: Deceptively Beautiful – Kenyon weather is the best in the country for the first three weeks and last three weeks of the school year. For everything in between, we barely see the sun. Students get seasonal affective (sp?) disorder all the time...and know that it's coming.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Whether you’re from New England, California, or down the road in Columbus, Kenyon College has a weather pattern for you! Overall, the weather is fairly mild, but for those not used to having four seasons, it can come as a bit of a shock. The early months of the fall semester tend to be hot and muggy, before finally giving way to a brisk autumn. Winter is very cold and snow-filled, an unfortunate fact that requires both rain boots and mittens. Spring brings rain and a lot of it, causing walking paths to flood.

The most important weather-related thing to keep in mind at Kenyon is the volatility! What looked like a beautiful morning on the way to breakfast can quickly turn into a torrential downpour on the way back to the dorm, and it’s important to be prepared for all scenarios. Most students simply carry a waterproof bag with their things rather than worry about hauling an umbrella.
