THE STUDENTS ARE GONE AND THINGS GET QUIET IN MARQUETTE!

This is the one of the most interesting times of year in Marquette County and in the Marquette Area.  If you ever wonder what it would be like to not have Northern Michigan University in our area, the next few days will give you an idea.  The hustle and bustle of students around town has diminished greatly as they have all headed home for the summer, or have at least left town for a few days away.  Thousands of students and hundreds of faculty members are not here for a bit.  Summer courses will soon start up again at NMU and there will be some students back on the Marquette scene, but by and large, it’s going to be a mellow time here in Marquette County for a while…at least until the tourists arrive!
