Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Connecticut weather is typical of New England: mild winters and warm summers. When classes begin in the fall, the summer temperatures are still going strong. Some classroom buildings have air conditioning, but the dorms do not. Because of this, it’s likely that your windows will be open year-round, even during the winter months when the heat can be too warm in your building.

A raincoat is a must-have. Walking to class in the rain is not fun, and it’s even worse when you have to sit in class for 90 minutes soaking wet. Umbrellas are of no use here because it seems to be windy in every season. On the other hand, the wind makes the summer heat bearable, and the winter months 10 degrees colder. Make sure you have a good winter coat, as well. North Face jackets and fleeces are very popular at UConn because they protect you from the cold weather. But once winter’s over, everyone rushes outdoors. You will see people studying outside, running, playing Frisbee, or just soaking up the sun they’ve missed for the past four months.
