4 College Junior

Weather: I hate the cold but the spring weather, my goodness.

3 College Freshman

Weather: LSU has such a beautiful campus and I enjoy walking around the campus. However, when it rains the streets and sidewalks flood quickly and it can be discouraging when the weather is bad to walk to classes.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Baton Rouge is hot and humid one day, and cold and windy the next.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Though the South was known for the devastation of hurricanes, LSU students from past years never saw hurricane weather as anything more than a hopeful cause to cancel classes, and Baton Rouge was rarely hit hard. This remained true until students witnessed the devastation of Hurricane Katrina to the southern part of the state. Even though Baton Rouge still suffered only minor damages from the storm, current and prospective students will probably more readily consider the possibility of a disaster occuring in their area.

On a day-to-day basis, Baton Rouge weather is hot and unbearably humid. The changing of the seasons is fairly nonexistent since the temperature rarely drops significantly. It snows, basically, every five years. Baton Rouge is not the place to take in beautiful autumn leaves or major snow drifts, but if you are looking for somewhere that allows you to constantly wear flip-flops and shorts without being judged, welcome home. It rains heavily at a moment's notice, so it is best to keep an umbrella in your bookbag, or at least check the Weather Channel before heading to class. Still, the majority of the year, students bask in the sun, wearing T-shirts and shorts and enjoying the great outdoors, no matter what the season.
