Many universities can claim weather-specific environments that appeal to people who enjoy constant cold or warmth. Some universities are lucky enough to be located in locations that are central to the experience of all four seasons. You will experience spring, summer, fall, and winter at their very finest on our beautiful campus. Our iconic buildings and landmarks endure the unique shape of snowflakes in December and enjoy the soothing touch of the sun in March. This is one of the best parts of being a student here on our campus.
Walking on the quad, having a picnic, or studying on the grass are all easy to do when the weather becomes so pleasant in the spring and summer. Beautiful trees and a wonderland of accumulated snow evoke the thought of perfect winters at Illinois. Cornfields and farms are located just minutes from one of the greatest academic intuitions in the world. In so many ways, Illinois is the quintessential Midwestern school.
For much of my life, I have called the Midwest home, and Illinois was the perfect place for my appreciation of the weather. For those who have never experienced the Midwest, I believe that you’ll fall in love with the charm of feeling what all four seasons can be like. Illinois has a million awesome qualities, but I always feel it is vital that I mention the weather on our campus. It is an aspect that cannot be ignored and will not be forgotten.
