Unpredictable is the best way to describe the weather conditions here. While the normal weather activities include hot, humid summers and mild winters with hardly any transition, Mother Nature likes to mix things up when you least expect it. There can be severe blizzards in winter or cold torrential downpours during summer. It is best to be prepared for all temperatures, as the weather is never set.
Most students don't mind the weather much, as winter tends to be mild. It makes it much easier to get to class when the sidewalks are clear of slush and snow. The spring months in Newark are gorgeous. Students can be found outdoors all over the campus enjoying the warm weather. Sunbathing doubles for study time on particularly nice days. While the weather can fluctuate drastically from day to day, there are some days when the weather is perfect—days you will be glad you were here to enjoy.
