Show Us Your M

By umcadmin

All University of Michigan alumni know the Block M is more than a letter. It is a symbol that represents something very special to a lot of people. Big or small, we love them all. Here are a few of our favorites, courtesy of the Alumni Association.

Where is your favorite Block M?

    Was reading about “Your Favorite Block M” in Michigan Today and wondered if you caught our M on a new TV show, “666 Park Avenue”? It is on Sunday night and stars Vanessa Williams and a male actor, Dave Annable, whose character, Henry Martin was out jogging in Central Park. He was jogging in a U-M shirt that has Michigan across the chest and a block M on the sleeve. Dave Annable attended SUNY Plattsburgh, so I was wondering which loyal Wolverine in the production company had the character wear “our” shirt. I was delighted. Wonder how many folks caught this?

    This is my block M story. I have proudly worn and carried the M to virtually every corner of the globe. From China to Australia. South Africa to Mt Washington. Taiwan to Scotland/England. In almost every instance I have gotten at least one “Go Blue”. This is easily the most recognizable symbol of any American university. Here is my photo album of the Block M around the world.
