3 College Sophomore

Weather: We know that we live in Michigan, and because of that our university to use the BEST resources to make sure that we are safe to go to class when the weather is bad. If you guys won't cancel when there's 3 feet of snow outside, then those sidewalks and streets should be immaculate if they expect us to go to class.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Western, the fall and spring semesters have one thing in common: snow. Half of the fall semester and half of the spring semester are spent covered in snow. Rain is also a big part of the area, when it isn't snowing during the fall and winter months and even part of the spring months.

However, there is a plus: Western does an excellent job of making the sidewalks and walkways easily accessible and weatherproof. So if you're hoping for a class cancelation due to the weather, don't bet on it. Snow days are very, very rare.
