Now I know for those who may be from warmer parts of the country, Chicago weather is not something you are accustomed to. Well have no fear as I have been living in Chicago my entire life and I’m still not used this weather. Every year, blankets of snow seem to get further away from December and closer to the beginning of spring, which can make things very confusing wardrobe-wise. I think I’m currently in a record year when I’m wearing four different layers just to keep warm, and I assume that will only continue as the temperature continues to drop.
Some key things to remember though is that large amounts of snow and cold weather is no excuse not to go to class, attendance adds up to participation points you may be counting on to get the grade you need. Also, don’t let cold weather stop you from leaving your dorm. I know the walk from your room to the student center may seem like a journey, but you must get used to being active in cold weather such as this, especially if you have got a few more years here at our wonderful university!
