Warm Winter College Choices

University of Arizona
Our last pick is University of Arizona, which is for those students that prefer cacti and canyons to sun and surf. Average Arizona temperatures at this time of year are in the 60s and 70s.
Like University of Miami, University of Arizona has typical outdoor recreation opportunities for students. It’s the surrounding area that really enables students to soak in the year-long warm weather.
We don’t want to discriminate so if you look ahead to the freezing temperatures all year long, we’ve found a few schools that make the most of winter with activities like snowboarding, cross country skiing, and dog sledding:
- University of Montana
- University of Colorado — Boulder
- Middlebury College
- Sierra Nevada College
- Dartmouth College
