3 College Senior

Weather: Living in Michigan in the winter is not fun. This year alone we already had three school closings due to the snow. Other than winter time when the snow hits hard and causes traffic issues, the weather is fine.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is just typical Michigan weather and is always changing. The plus side is that campus is not huge so you can make it to your classes easily and weather is not a huge factor.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Michigan is always changing. It absorbs the 4 seasons, sometimes in one week. Because of the small campus area, it is easy to walk through even in the toughest weather. Parking is all around and close to your buildings. Cafe and eating areas are also close by.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Michigan so therefore Rochester Hills is no exception to it's bi-polar weather conditions. It can be sunny and bright out in the middle of December and then snowing in March. The school does a good job at making sure the grounds are safe in icy conditions and keeping the parking lots paved and salted.

3 College Senior

Weather: Cold Winters – We have pretty cold winters, but the amount of snow we receive usually does not shut down the campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rochester College experiences the traditional four seasons. Summers are generally very warm, but things cool down in the fall. Winters generally are very cold, and the first major snow usually hits sometime in early November. Winter snowstorms usually last well into March. Going into April, the weather starts to warm up slightly, though it is also a rainy season. When people have lived here long enough, they start to notice that the so-called "Michigan effect" often occurs. Anecdotally, this is often attributed to Metro Detroit being situated west of Lake Erie and south of Lake Huron.

Anyone who is thinking of going to Rochester College should make sure to bring the appropriate seasonal clothing. Definitely during the colder months, winter jackets, boots, hats, gloves, and thermal underwear are highly encouraged. The school is diligent about clearing out walking paths when a heavy snow hits.
