Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Like most other aspects about Loyola, students maintain their sense of humor regarding the weather in the city they call home. Don't like the weather in Chicago? Wait five minutes, it will change. The negative is that the city is cold just about nine months out of the year. The positive is that with the constant wind dropping temperatures below zero on a regular basis, 50 degrees seems pretty temperate. You won't see many people with fancy hairdos in Chicago; the wind defies any amount of gel or mousse. Most people own a good collection of hats. You'll have to get used to windburn rather than sunburn, because the wind blows directly into your face no matter which way you walk. Loyola's Lake Shore Campus is especially bad, because the entire area seems to have been built as one gigantic wind tunnel.

Students love and hate Chicago's fickle weather. During the winter, virtually no one ventures outside the dorms unless they have to. Summertime, however, brings the students outside in droves, looking to revel in the sunshine and their newfound ability to wear shorts. The best advice for someone new to Chicago is to simply accept the weather. It will change, unpredictably and frequently. So bring clothes for Siberia and for San Antonio; Chicago will feel like each at some point or another. Just make sure to go somewhere warm for spring break.
