How to Survive a New England Winter,
Cold Clinic and Winter Apparel Giveaway
New England is famous for its four distinct seasons, including beautiful (and cold!) winters and we hope you will learn to take advantage of the region’s year‐round outdoor opportunities.
However, you can only enjoy winter if you are properly prepared, which is why OISS, Grad Student Life at the McDougal Center and Yale Health have joined forces to make sure that your first winter in New England is a safe, healthy, and fun one.
