The range of weather during a year at school is incredible. When students first begin classes in August, it is very warm and very sunny—great weather for outdoor activities, but a little hot walking up the hill to class. The weather cools off gradually, and December can get pretty cold!
In the winter, a warm coat, a hat, and gloves are definitely a necessity, especially for students who have morning classes. There isn't a ton of snow, but Bowling Green does get some, and when it does, there are always people sledding down the hill and having snowball fights. In the spring, it warms up again, and there is usually quite a bit of rain. An umbrella is a must, and many people choose to bring rain boots to avoid wet feet.
