The weather is typical of any mid-Atlantic state. Fall and spring are always nice and sunny with a light breeze, and the temperatures are in the upper 50s to mid-60s. Winters get cold for almost anyone’s standards, and at least one big snowstorm occurs—but that usually turns into more fun than most parties because you’re guaranteed to see makeshift sleds out of pizza boxes and trays, not to mention snowball fights and snowmen. The only time it’s really hot is during orientation, and unless you are in the older dorms, there is always air-conditioning.
If you are having trouble packing for school, use vacation breaks to your advantage. When you first arrive, shorts and T-shirts are a must, as it can be hot. However, during fall break, start to bring summer clothes home and fill your school closet with warmer clothes, light sweaters, and windbreakers. Over Thanksgiving break, get your winter wardrobe because it gets cold pretty quickly and doesn’t let up until spring break. That’s a perfect time to start bringing back warmer clothes, and by Easter break, you should be back to where you started. Some good ideas are waterproof boots for the rain and snow, as well as a warm jacket and a good pair of gloves.
