"It was summertime in northern Michigan!"

10 Things That Every Michigander Loves About Up North

Whether it's camping or a cottage on the lake, everyone in the mitten seems to have their own unique connection to Up North. Each place is different, but the feelings about Up North are always the same.

1. Up North has a super specific smell. Just looking at these trees, you can practically smell it.

2. Water sports are intense. Some of your best memories come from flying through the air on a tube.

3. You have an ever-growing collection of petoskey stones.

4. Bonfires by the lake were a given every night of your trip (s'mores too).

5. Each family has an ice cream parlor that they insist is the "best ice cream ever."

6. Nothing beats fireworks on the lake on the 4th of July.

7. You have definitely screamed the lyrics to "All Summer Long", by Kid Rock.

8. Nothing is more beautiful than a sunset on Lake Michigan.

9. The first place you learned to fish was up north on the lake.

10. The narrator of the Pure Michigan commercials get's it right every single time. He always reminds you that you live in the best state ever.

I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time.
