I would like to take my daughter to look at colleges in Minnesota - Carleton, Macalester, St. Olaf. I think the student bodies at these schools could be "her people." However, I am concerned about what effects the cold Minnesota winters could have. While she doesn't have seasonal affective disorder, she is concerned that the cold dark winters could leave her feeling down in the dumps. How do students who aren't really "winter people" cope? Is it a factor? Thoughts anyone?
