So, Syracuse seems like a pretty awesome school. It's got interesting programs in music industry, an amazing journalism school...basically, I'm hella interested. The only problem? The weather! I know, I know, stupid, right? But I can't stand the cold. I'm from the Mid-Atlantic, and when it drops to 40 I'm absolutely miserable. Perhaps this is because I never really invested in any appropriate clothes, as here you can get by with just a sweatshirt year round if you're willing to be uncomfortable some days. But I'm still worried.
Any current students from warmer states finding it difficult to adjust to the winter weather? Is "all snow all the time" depressing? Or is it jolly and holiday-ish? Do people like to go sledding and build snowmen, or is it just so cold they hole themselves up in their rooms/library/frathouses? I'm serious here. I'm a warm-weather mammal, but maybe I can adjust, especially if the weather doesn't kill the good vibes.
