Living in the UP


Everyone will mention the snow, which stays around for months. We have great skiing for cross country lovers. There is kayaking and water everywhere.  We are far from the city and surrounded by a great lake which seems like an ocean.  The small town life has no traffic and noise, but students come here from all over the world. We are located on the Mid Continent rift--Earth’s first continental flood basalts which includes one of Earth’s largest lava flows.  The sauna will become part of your culture.  After living here, your values may change.


Living in the UP is different
