Graduation day is the culmination of years of hard work and sacrifice by our students and their family. Our Chancellors Commencement Corps program involves alumni to make sure that day is extra special for students and their family. Corps members work to welcome families, take family photos, sign up students for the Alumni Association and a number of other jobs on that day. This program is fun, easy and very important!
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.”
