Everywhere has 4 seasons, but in some places--such as the Canadian Prairies--those seasons are distinctly different.
We definitely have 4 seasons in this part of the world. Our temperatures can vary over 70 degrees between the highs of summer and lows of winter. For example, winter can be colder than -40º C, with or without a wind chill, and summer can reach highs of over 30º C. Those are the extremes.
Don't let the cold get you down--we have lots of hours of sunshine, even in the winter.
And because we have winter, we do know how to have fun outside. Part of your experience here should include trying a winter sport.
Yes, it's cold
...but we don't have polar bears roaming anywhere near Lakeland College. If you are here over the winter, you'll need the right kind of outer wear including winter coat, boots, scarf, mittens or gloves.
