Yankee Invasion, a novel by Mexican novelist Ignacio Solares and translated into English by Timothy Compton (Modern Languages and Literatures), was named a finalist in the ForeWord Reviews 2009 Book of the Year Awards in the category of "Fiction–Translations." According to the ForeWord website, the finalists in the various categories “are examples of independent publishing at its best.” Yankee Invasion highlights the presence of U.S. military forces in Mexico City in 1847, an event remembered vividly in Mexico, but almost forgotten in the United States. 

A May 30 Chronicle of Higher Education article featured a story titled "How Transfers Are Changing Northern Michigan U.'s Enrollment Equation." It addressed the impact of demographic shifts and economic swings on recruiting. NMU enrolled 100 more transfer students last year than anticipated and transfer applications are ahead of that pace. The university increased its enrollment target for transfers from 430 to 480 for this fall and reduced its freshman goal by 80 to 1,800. The article also highlighted some of the transfer-friendly initiatives at NMU, from a revamped website to expanded scholarships to improved credit transfer agreements and policies.
