For the week of November 1, 2004
From the 6th floor
fewer leaves on the trees. Definitely. But
all things considered, still fairly mild in Upper Michigan. And believe
it or not, youngsters didn't have to wear snowsuits over their Halloween
costumes last night. It's been hanging around in the low 40s most days lately,
with the rest of the week calling for more of the same. It's not until next
week that the four letter word makes an appearance in the forecast. But
I'll worry about that tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

Just what you asked for...
You probably would be very surprised to hear how many times someone has asked for the NMU Fight Song or the Alma Mater. We now have them available for you to download.
And what would be the fun in having the music if you can't sing along?
Wildcats of Northern
We're behind you in this game
We're the Wildcats of Northern
Do your best to win acclaim
You are the pride and joy
Of every person young and old
So do your best
For Northern's glory
Fight for the green and gold
Hail Northern, we thy sons and daughters
Now bring thee tribute long deserved
Thou beacon light 'mid natures grandeur
Through passing decades well-preserved
Oh, may we labor with untiring zeal
That when these golden days have flown
We may with honor face the future
And match thy courage with our own
And ten bucks says you're singing right now, even if it's not aloud.

From the Email bag
"What a great issue.
The pics made me feel like I was back "home." Beautiful fall colors,
'Cats kicking butt on the ice and the panoramic view from Hogsback was like
deja vu. Keep them coming, Deanna--you're the best! An old 'Cat down in Motown."

"What's New, NMU?" It looks great and I hope this is something that
