Tired of the snow? If you’re a high school senior, you’ve got a chance to escape the cold by picking a college or university in a town with warm weather. Some people love sledding in heavy coats, but others would rather wear flip-flops at the beach.

If feeling frozen during finals is not your style, you have options. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is on its own island. Winter temperatures at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, rarely go below 60 degrees. The Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, is five minutes from the beach, and Honolulu Community College is, well, in Hawaii.

"Snow and shoveling and ice -- it's overrated, really," University of South Florida alumna Naomi Prioleau told U.S. News and World Report. "Winter's a pain in the neck, [so] I didn't apply to any schools where I knew would have snow."
