From mild and breezy in the fall, to sunny and humid in the summer, Virginia weather can be as unpredictable as a drunken frat boy. Students definitely get to experience the best of all fours seasons, including snow days in the winter and great tanning weather in the summer and spring.
For a majority of the months that school’s in session, it is cold, so trekking to class can be a bit of a pain for students unless they wear layers. Invest in a couple of good pairs of boots, especially a pair of rain boots—they’ll come in handy on those dreary and rainy days when there’s a 9 a.m. class to attend. However, except for this past winter when the area got blasted with 30 plus inches of snow, the winters aren’t so bad; there is usually little to no snow accumulation on campus. The area provides a lot of fun seasonal activites, such as the D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival in the spring, and a variety of pumpkin patches to visit in the fall.
