Homecoming Welcome from Jim Cogswell

Stamps Professor Jim Cogswell welcomes you to homecoming and offers some “words of wisdom” for 2020.

A Day In The Life of a Stamps Student

Stamps student Zack Williams (BA '21) gives us an inside look at a typical day as an art & design student at U-M during the fall 2020 semester. His unique perspective shows how students are coping with the pandemic while maintaining their creativity. This video was shot prior to the Stay in Place order issued on 10/20.

Stamps Greatest Hits Bracket

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the Stamps School find ourselves reminiscing on our favorite memories of the School and looking forward to a time when we can take part in the exciting activities that make Stamps, Stamps, again. Help us determine the all time best Stamps memory in our homecoming bracket challenge. 

Making pizza in the ceramics studio? Getting the best locker? Taking the Stamps bus to Detroit? Cast your votes in our bracket challenge to help us determine the all-time greatest hallmark of being a Stamps student. We’re all looking forward to a time when we can participate in these activities again and hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane. 

On Monday, October 12 the complete bracket will be shared on the Stamps School Instagram and the Stamps School Facebook. Beginning on October 19th and following the below poll schedule, we’ll be asking YOU to cast your vote through Instagram or Facebook posts. Each poll will be live from that day until 11:59 pm, so make sure you follow us on Instagram or Facebook so you don’t miss your chance to vote!
