4 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida. It's hot in summer and not so hot in winter. We get lots of rain. The beach is thirty minutes away.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Although I attended through a hurricane and a tornado, the weather was ideal Florida weather. And made for many late night beach escapades.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I haven't started school yet but I am assuming it is similar to the local areas, which is different at different times

2 College Freshman

Weather: its Florida weather. Florida weather is ALWAYS BAD!

5 College Freshman

Weather: Living in Florida is the best choice for college. It's a known fact that the warmer and sunnier a location, the happier the residents. I couldn't deal with northern winter so Stetson is PERFECT. It's almost christmas and our coldest day so far was about 60 degrees.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Weather is weather, and everyone likes different weather. The biggest problem with Florida is that it virtually has one season. The days are warm or hot with frequent rain. Of course, there are the risks of a hurricane coming through, which DeLand has seen before. During past hurricanes, Stetson University had substantial damage. Hurricanes are the worst of the weather that will happen, though the heat and humidity can be rough. At times, the heat can reach up into the 90s with humidity hitting from 75 percent to 100 percent. These conditions can really kill a student who might not be used to the harsh conditions, especially on move-in day or when going between classes.

Aside from the negatives, there is a great upside to such weather. Being that it is Florida, this hot weather is great for those who love going to the beach, which is only a 15-minute drive away. Beach lovers will appreciate this weather since they will be able to go to the beach well into fall. The cold weather is spotty and hits hard from December through late February. Remember to pack for summer-like weather, but also bring a few winter clothes for when the time comes.
