Snow Days at DBU


rsz img 8009

 School is just about to start again at DBU, and we at DBU International couldn’t be more excited! We are especially excited about all of our brand new international students who will be arriving in a few days! We are in the middle of winter here at DBU, and so we want to use this blog post as a reminder to all international students, new or returning, to make sure you bring winter clothes (hats, scarves, gloves, and a warm coat) with you, or you plan to buy them when you arrive.


Winter in Dallas is usually mild enough that snow is not a constant occurrence, but we do get snow a few times during the season. DBU students enjoy making the most of the snow that we get, and snow days at DBU are the best! We have so many great hills for sledding, and we always count on having a great time. However, it is very important to prepare for snow days by having proper clothing. No one wants to wait until the snow has already fallen and the roads are closed to realize they do not have a snow day-worthy coat, hat, scarf, or pair of boots and gloves. If you live in an area that never gets snow it may be difficult to know what kind of stuff to buy, so DBU International’s amazing photographer Alli took some photos of some snow-day wear so you would have an idea of what to buy before the snow comes!

Things like a warm sweater and hat are a great place to start when looking for good winter clothes!

Sturdy boots and a flannel shirt are also important for DBU snow days!

Do not forget to bring an umbrella and rain jacket for rainy days! A travel mug is a great way to stay warm and hydrated as it gets cold outside.

Perhaps the most important items to remember when packing for the cold winter months at DBU are a mug for a hot coffee and a good book to curl up with after a long, cold winter day.



 Here at DBU we are excitedly anticipating the arrival of all our International students, both new and returning. We hope you are having a great winter break, and we look forward to seeing you in a couple weeks!
