New England Living

Living in New England is the best of all worlds!  At New England College, we are fortunate to see nature in all four seasons. 

Here’s what you can expect when living in New England.

Autumn in New England

The Northeast is known for its spectacular foliage. You will get to see all the colors of the rainbow right outside your windows in Henniker.  The autumn typically starts warm and ends brisk.  Sweatshirts and light jackets are usually perfect for fall weather.

Winter in New England

Expect the temperatures to drop and snow to fly!  This is a picturesque time of year, with holiday decorations and clean, white dustings.  Hats, gloves, a warm coat and boots are a must during the winter months in New England.

Spring in New England

In like a lion, out like a lamb, spring can produce winter-like sleet and summer-like breeze.  A raincoat and a collection of layers helps you adjust to the changing and welcoming weather.  Those who enjoy winter sports can look forward to continuing well into spring.

Summer in New England

Make sure to wear sunscreen and your shades.  Summer in Henniker is sparkling!  Sundresses and shorts are common along with sandals and sneakers.  Basking by our river is a popular outing along with many others warm-weathered activities outdoors.
