THINGS TO BRING

Appropriate clothing for Ohio's varying weather.


Ohio has a varying climate with four distinct seasons:

Season                      Months

Summer                    June - August

Fall                             September - November

Winter                       December- March

Spring                       March- June


Temperatures vary considerably from year to year.  During spring, summer and fall moderate periods of rainfall occur; snow falls during the winter months and can be heavy.  Three basic types of clothing are essential in winter; heavy jackets or overcoats; warm hats; scarves and gloves are needed.  During chilly autumn and spring days, jackets are worn outdoors, sweaters indoors.  A lightweight jacket is sometimes necessary for cool nights during spring, summer and fall.

 

Personal Items 

We encourage students to bring personal and cultural items from home to help them feel more comfortable and to show to their new American friends.   Students may want to bring items they use regularly that may not be readily available, or may be more expensive in the United States.
