Northern Michigan University and Marquette are two of my favorite places on Earth. It is true that NMU is a small school and has a mediocre curriculum, BUT this was vastly overshadowed by the scenery, the other students, the outdoor activities, the small class size, the accessability to professors, and even by the "sanctioned" school activities.

If you are looking for a "Big Ten" kind of school, this ain't it! If you are looking for school where the number of students in your major would make up a softball team by graduation and where you can take ice hockey as a PE credit… Then NMU is where it is at

I loved the small "family" nature of my major classes. More than that though, I loved snowshoeing, skiing, playing hockey, hiking in the fall, making out with my girlfriend on top of the rocks high over Lake Superior, and cliff diving into the coldest water on Earth. Best of all, I enjoyed cutting class and going trout fishing 10 minutes from campus with my best friend.
