1. “Yooper” is not just a nickname, it’s a way of life.
If you can climb Front Street at 2 a.m. in the dead of winter to get back home, and only fall once, you’re a Yooper. If you can party on a Tuesday and get up for work at 6 a.m. on Wednesday? You’re a Yooper. Being a Yooper means so many different things, but basically, if you can survive some of the harshest winters in American and still know how to party once summer hits, you’re a Yooper.
