3 College Sophomore

Weather: This is Georgia. I am from the south so it isn't a big change for me. The fact is some days will be wonderful and others will be bad. Good news is the campus is so small you will never be in the bad weather for long.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Unless there is snow, school continues despite the weather. The pathways to class and the buildings are still accessible in heavy rain, although the open area is pretty inconvenient for those without cars or umbrellas.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Although we are in the south Georgia gets more east coast weather than "Dirty South" weather. Being from Alabama I am used to sweltering summers and frigid winters, however Georgia has less humid summers, more wind, more sun, and it gets kind of chilly for someone who is used to the heat until November or even December. It didn't take long to adapt and going home to winter over the holiday break was easy. The weather doesn't affect my campus experience, it can't because not going to class isn't an option! It's bearable but bring winter clothes and summer clothes because you never know what the temperature will be despite the season.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather isn't too bad but can be overwhelming when walking to class.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It like never snows here and the weather is usually pretty moderate. It's not extremely hot or cold, and it doesn't rain an inordinate amount. You can get from one end of campus to the other in less 15 minutes; it's usually more like 5-10 minutes.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Weather at OU can be unpredictable, ranging from rainy one day to hot the next.  But when the weather is nice, the outdoors are beautiful, and students can be found taking advantage of these days by studying or socializing outside.

Overall, the weather stays interesting, but there's usually a lot of rain. The school has seen flooding a few times. This can be an inconvenience when walking to classes and back. Flooding has also caused classes to be cancelled before, which can put a damper on a student's studies.

One of Oglethorpe's most enjoyable weather surprises is snow, which leaves the campus looking gorgeous. This sometimes interferes with preplanned activities, but they are often able to be rescheduled or moved indoors. In any case, the snow allows for plenty of other activities, such as snowman-building competitions or a campus-wide snowball fight.
