On Saturday, Sept. 22, fall officially begins. But with the cold rainy weather in Marquette all week, it feels like fall (and possibly inklings of winter) have already reached NMU.
NMU’s student newspapers have covered similar times in the past with relative depth. On Oct. 13, 1963, this photo was printed on the front page. The caption under the photo says, “Students have had to navigate puddles and hurry to class to stay dry recently. More than two inches of rain has fallen in the area the past couple of days. But don’t let the gloom drag you too low; the weather service says that skies will turn partly cloudy, and the temperatures will reach 60 degrees on Friday.”
The changing seasons in the U.P. have also taken center stage in the newspaper. This middle-spread of the newspaper is about good places to see the changing colors throughout the Upper Peninsula, and even though it was published in 1984, those places are still scenic and beautiful when the leaves change.
