“Drivers, start your engines!” the race marshal boomed. Revved-up motors thundered and with a flash of the green flag, race fever swept alumni at the Go Blue on the Bricks party.
Cheering for 2-foot-long wooden cars as they’re moved along a carpeted track – and maybe winning a few hundred dollars in the process – is one of the highlights of the annual event, held exclusively for University of Michigan-Flint alumni and their families during Back to the Bricks. This year’s Go Blue on the Bricks party is slated for 6-9 p.m.. Friday, Aug. 14, in the University Pavilion.

When Ericca Stamper started at UM-Flint, she declared a philosophy major.“I signed up for a class in biology as an elective because I thought it sounded interesting,” she said. Little did she know that she would find her career. “In that class Ernie Szuch taught a section on ecology and evolution, and his lectures were so interesting and engaging that I could not stand to miss a single minute of it,” Stamper said. “It was because of this class that I changed my major to biology.”
