"After spending a few years at the University of Hawaii, I wanted to come back to my small town roots of the Upper Peninsula. Not only does NMU offer the classes that I needed to complete my degree, but the fact that its conveniently nestled amongst some of the best hiking/biking trails and endless freshwater lakes made it an easy transfer."
