It's cold and there's already snow. There were some cool days with sun that were perfect for the beach. I love the weather!

In marquette, we are known for the amount of snow we get every winter and how long our winters last, so it is a task getting to the class. But if you were born in Michigan and are used to it, it isn't a big deal.

The weather at Northern can be a little difficult at times, but this is acceptable considering that it is so far North. There is definitely a lot snow in the winter, and the winter seems to last for a very long time, but Northern is very considerate of the fact that many of their students commute, and will cancel classes whenever they feel that some of their students might be in danger. Despite the large amounts of precipitation though, the campus and Marquette itself are absolutely beautiful. Hiking and swimming are common activities, and in the fall and spring there are always students doing their studying outside.

NMU has a reputation for getting a TON of snow, and it's well-founded--we got over 200 inches this past year. If you hate snow, this is probably not the place for you. But for those of us who love or tolerate winter, it's GREAT. The weather is variable, a never-ending source of entertainment, it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL in winter, and the grounds crew do an AMAZING job of keeping it safe. Unless you're out and about VERY early in the morning, they've usually got the main roads at least somewhat plowed before anyone's on campus even for early classes, and they're constantly scraping the sidewalks and putting down fresh dirt so that you don't slip and fall. There are always those places where the ice is particularly slippery and stubborn, but it's really not that bad once you get used to it. Despite the length and intensity of the winter, I honestly love it here. Though that time I woke up and had to be at work at 6AM and there were six inches of fresh snow on the ground WAS a little annoying...

Some people complain about the snow, but in a seriousness, this is the Upper Peninsula. If you don't like snow then don't go to school in the north. If you are willing to put up with whatever Michigan throws at you, even snow in the middle of April, then you might like it here.
Marquette is beautiful in the late spring and summer: doesn't get too hot. The fall is a nice transitionary period, and winter has a lot to offer as far as sports and the beauty of snow.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
