we need a map of Northern michigan with cities listed. I am lazy but will do it if nobody else wants to contribute to the legacy of wikipedia by drawing and posting one. MPS 20:41, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
Midland is in the county directly east of Isabella County (where Central Michigan University is located). Midland County is not considered part of northern Michigan, therefore neither is Northwood University. This means there are no four-year universities in northern Michigan.
Four year colleges
Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan (and also in Grand Rapids, Michigan) most definitely offers four year and post graduate degrees. So your statement that there are "no four-year universities in northern Michigan" would be unfounded. 
The AM radio listing is a complete mess
Somebody needs to do a commentary on US-31, US-27 and US-131. I almost never drive those, and I'm bored with the size of putting this whole road thing together. There are probably fairly good descriptions of at least one of them in Traverse City, Michigan.
DONE. We should also add in M-115 and M-13 (needs commentary) (the latter runs north from Bay City to Standish and US-23, and is the hypotonous of a right triangle, where one might have considered using I-75 to get to US-23.
Statistics on Michigan
There are relevant statistics on Michigan, which I believe are part of the larger picture. One of our editors removed this as 'irrelevant'. My request to him for more relevant data (presumably limited to Northern Michigan) has gone unanswered. Here is the data:
- The geographical theme of this region is shaped by the fact that it is part of greater Michigan, which has:
- 58,110 square miles (150,500 km2) of land.
- 1,305 square miles (3,380 km2) of inland water.
- 38,575 square miles (99,910 km2) of Great Lakes water area.
- 3,288 miles (5,292 km) of Great Lakes shoreline.
- 11,037 inland lakes.
- Those stats are in the Michigan article already. Why re-add them here? Comparative statistics (as in, "this region comprises 1/4 of the land area of the state" (I made that up)) are useful, but not stats about the state and not the region. I agree with Rmherman on this one. Also, I don't think that a complete listing of every detail is really useful -- such as every single AM radio station. It doesn't add to the encyclopedic quality of the article and just adds a lot of extra material to wade through. That may be more relevant on, say, WikiTravel. -- dcclark (talk) 05:39, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
I reworked the statistics, so it is just a simple paragraph. I think it adds something to the article. I did put in an internal link to the Michigan article, which oddly may not have been in there at all. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 12:13, 28 December 2007 (UTC)Stan
Here's antoher source that repeated the 3288 figure. http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/countrys/namerica/usstates/mi.htm 7&6=thirteen (talk) 12:41, 29 December 2007 (UTC)Stan
Lists of radio stations, etc.
As to the criticism on the radio stations, maybe it does belong somewhere else, and a simple link would solve the issue. However, I don't think that this information is anywhere else, and simply deleting it makes little sense, as it is potentially useful to users. On the other hand, it si at the end of this article, and doesn't really detract from the flow. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 12:13, 28 December 2007 (UTC)Stan
- List of radio stations. The Central Michigan University NPR station has a bunch of stations ( that service northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. They probably should be included. They are WCMU-FM 89.5 Mt. Pleasant; WUCX-FM 90.1 Bay City; WCML-FM 91.7 Alpena; WWCM-FM 96.9 Standish; WCMZ-FM 98.3 Sault Saint Marie; WCMB-FM 95.7 Oscoda; and WCMW-FM 103.9 Harbor Springs. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 13:00, 23 August 2008 (UTC) Stan

Orphaned references in Northern Michigan
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Northern Michigan's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
Reference named "drury":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 01:38, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

I just added a bunch of stuff to the history section in the last few days and it s getting rather long... do you think it would be ok to start a History of northern Michigan article? I have not even touched the 20th century and there is still some stuff from the Louisiana (New France) era that I think would be valuable. Peace MPS (talk) 22:51, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
