4 College Freshman

Weather: its Virginia.... so you can get all 4 seasons in 1 week

3 College Junior

Weather: When it rains it sucks walking far to class, but that is it.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is pretty mild during spring and the campus is gorgeous! Fall is about the same. In August and September, though, if you don't have an air-conditioned dorm room, you need at least one fan. It can get really hot in the dorms. In winter, there's a lot of snow sometimes and sometimes class is canceled! It can also be a little bit dangerous on icy steps sometimes so be careful. When it rains, there are a lot of puddles on campus so bring rain boots. Overall I think we have pretty average weather for Virginia.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Welcome to Northern Virginia, home of the most unpredictable weather. There is an entire spectrum of weather throughout the school year. Overall, the weather is beautiful for each season, even with randomly warm days or sudden snow. To amplify how the weather cannot be precedented here, there was a year where 3 feet of snow hit the University, and another year where it didn't snow at all. But overall, the weather fits into the stereotype of each season.

Fall is lukewarm, as it goes into a cooler climate. Winter is, overall, cold with random days where it will be inexplicably warm. Spring is rainy and musky, and starts to increasingly warm up right before you get out of school in early May. For the majority of the months that school is in session, it will be cold—so bring more wintry attire than you think are necessary. Invest in a good pair of rain boots, as you'll find them useful when walking across campus in the harsh sleet that winter brings or the weekly rain in March and April.

Did You Know?
A "Snowpocalypse" hit Mary Washington with 36 inches of snow in the winter of 2010, causing the University to close down for the week. While the incredible mass of snow made it difficult for classes to proceed, it did make for igloo-building opportunities.
