If you're already from the Northeast, you know exactly what to expect in terms of weather at Fordham. But in case you're coming from the South, the West, or even another country, here's what you need to know. When school first starts, it's hot! Students stroll around campus in shorts, tank tops, and flip flops, trying to beat the heat. Then the fall sets in, and jeans and sweaters come out. In recent years, there has been quite a lot of rain in the fall months, and Fordham's campus does not handle rain very well, so be sure to pack rain boots and umbrellas. You don't want to ruin your sneakers or UGGs while running across campus in the rain! When it comes to winter, once a chill hits the air, make sure you have a warm winter coat so you don't freeze while walking to class. When the first snow of the season rolls through, many Northeast natives watch their classmates from warmer climates freak out and rush to go play in frozen powder they're excited to see for the first time.
All in all, there's no extreme weather in the Fordham area, but over the course of one school year, every season will be experienced, so be prepared for everything. Also, check the weather before you get dressed and leave your dorm room! Just because the sun isn't shining doesn't mean it's cold, and you don't want to be sweating in class while everyone around you is in shorts.
