Cold temperatures have most students scrambling for ways to keep themselves warm during the winter season. From just bundling up to drinking delicious hot chocolate, students try several different methods to survive the cold. When the temperatures plunge, it is important for students to stay warm.
When cold temperatures come knocking, layering clothing is a common way students attempt to find relief.
“When it is cold outside, I layer up a lot, and I also cover myself up with a bunch of blankets to stay warm,” sophomore Cheyenne Brannan said.
Other students use more creative and unique techniques to cope with the plummeting temperatures.
“I have an electric blanket that I use to stay warm,” freshman Claudia Orlowski said.
Most people would rather stay inside when the temperatures are low instead of venturing out in the cold weather.
“My dad makes a fire in our fireplace downstairs, and I just sit by the fire to keep warm,” freshman Allie Paulsen said.
When students are forced to brave the cold winter weather, some turn to specific types of clothing that are specialized to protect them in frigid temperatures.
“I use thermal gear to stay warm during the winter,” sophomore Brandon Bumgarner said.
Other students turn to warm, seasonal drinks such as delicious hot chocolate and delightful coffee to warm up their bodies.
“When the weather turns really cold, I always drink lots of coffee from Dunkin Donuts,” sophomore Caroline Dower said.
When the weather turns cold, some students stay inside in their warm home and enjoy some alone time.
“I stay in my room and just vibe to my music while I draw,” sophomore Gracie Hett said.
Some students embrace the low temperatures and spend their time outside enjoying it.
“I go ice skating with my friends at Chicken N’ Pickle,” sophomore Nicole McIlvain said.
As the temperatures drops, many students take extra precautions to keep themselves warm. Sitting by the fire, wearing warm clothing, and sipping warm coffee are just a few of the many strategies that are commonly used by students to keep warm during the winter season.
