Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It seems as though every Rutgers student, both male and female, owns a black sweatshirt with "RUTGERS" embroidered in fiery red thread. This sweatshirt is worn religiously throughout the winter and any time it rains in the warmer months. The weather during the fall semester is typical of the east coast. September begins with high temperatures and ends with lower. During move-in day, students normally wear T-shirts and light pants and shorts. By the end of September, the infamous Rutgers sweatshirt begins its circulation.

The weather certainly fluctuates throughout the year. It may be over 90 degrees during the first week of classes, and then the winter may be brutal enough for snow day, which Rutgers is notorious for not ever giving. Students often joke that living in New Brunswick or Piscataway sometimes feels like Biblical times, as it often rains for a week straight. Rain at Rutgers is an incredibly annoying occurrence. Students have to wait for buses in the rain and then ride them in dead stop traffic, making them late to class. Tremendous puddles form in New Brunswick streets, so be prepared. The spring semester at Rutgers begins cold but ends with students sunbathing on towels in front of their dorms. And, like at most colleges, flip-flops are essential items for your wardrobe.
