Weather: The winter can be very cold and long, and it's often not nice until late April or May. However, it's what you sign up for when moving to New England.

Weather: I'm from Williamstown, so I'm totally used to the harsh winters and somewhat wild weather we experience here in the North, but some of my California friends are finding it to be not so pleasant. But if you like the cold, you're set!

Weather: It Gets Cold – Even if you're from the New England area, the weather in Williamstown will still require some getting used to. Because its up in the mountains it gets very cold. Its a good idea to invest in some really warm clothing and boots. Classes almost never get canceled so you definitely will be trekking through the snow.

Weather: New England Beauty – Some outsiders might say that New England weather- especially in the Berkshires- is a little temperamental, but it just keeps it interesting. The scenery is beautiful in any weather, and most spring days are sunny and beautiful. Although it does get quite cold in the winter, the winter study semester allows for an opportunity to stay inside a bit more and just chill out or party with friends.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Well, it is cold. However, it is a matter of how cold is too cold for you. As time goes by, most students learn to cope with the cold, and some actually enjoy the snow. Fortunately, the valley that Williamstown sits in protects Williams from the harshest part of storms that hit the rest of the Berkshires.

The fall is the highlight of Williamstown. Set in the forest and mountain areas of Massachusetts, Williamstown is surrounded by beautiful scenery, even if the weather is a bit chilly. Students find themselves anticipating the coming of spring when the snow finally melts, the weather warms up, and the color returns to Williamstown.
