When coming to Pittsburgh, expect rain. Lots and lots of rain. Sometimes there are simply clouds in the sky, and it is threatening to rain but never does, and other times, walking on campus is what some students would imagine walking through the ocean would feel like. Those days are more rare, but at the very least, CMU students who are new to Pittsburgh get into the habit of carrying an umbrella with them at all times. This isn't to scare you off! When the sun is out, it shines like it would on the ultimate summer day. On these days, you could mistake the campus for one of those sunny, beach-side Californian schools. Students sunbathe on the cut, grill on the barbecue just for the heck of it, and engage in pick-up games of every sport imaginable. These sunny days are cherished during the winter, when a lot of people get cabin fever from avoiding the wintry weather. When it comes time for spring, it is still raining, but Pittsburgh has a unique ability to experience torrential down-pours one minute and glaring sun the next.
Pittsburgh's weather is something that students end up getting used to. The best way to deal with the weather is to always have access to an umbrella. If that's not possible, the campus is small—or you can simply camp out in a building and wait it out. Students really only complain when it comes time to go out on the weekends. Face it—who wants to trek to a party in the pouring rain? At the end of the day, however irritating the rain is, students just adapt because there is no reason to get worked up over something that no one really has any control over.
