The Office of Student Publications at the University of Michigan is currently upgrading its website. We will be launching our new website later this month. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
The trip was a great opportunity to meet students from other universities with similar interests. We got to share tips on both the professional and the creative side of the publication process. We also had a chance to hear about the comedy industry from two professionals currently working in it. " Come on Ross, we know you have a great deal more to say!"... stay tuned SPUB fans! Lets give Ross a chance to redeem his creative writing efforts!
The 2012 CNBAM conference in Miami, FL was both a memorable and beneficial experience. My colleagues and I met other ambitious, talented, dedicated college students who are supplementing their classroom education with real-world experiences. We conversed with account executives, managers and student advisers from various college newspapers, as well as recruiters and trainers in the industry. CNBAM also gave us a fantastic opportunity to bond with each other. We had become a close-knit group of friends who are dedicated to keeping The Michigan Daily alive.
To Student Publications Alumni, Donors & Friends:
My name is Brooke Dexter, and I am a Peterson-Fineberg Scholarship Recipient. As the Editor in Chief of the Michiganensian Yearbook, I want you to know that this Scholarship has aided me in furthering my study of architecture at Michigan. Between the yearbook and architecture, my time is well spent and I'm glad to be a part of both. Scholarships like this one recognize the effort that all our our hard working staff puts in at the Michiganensian.
One of the Daily’s brightest lights and sweetest souls, Tammy Jacobs Bell '73, died in July 2010 of cancer after fending it off ferociously for a lifetime. The Michigan Daily was always in her tremendous heart.
When Tammy was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her sophomore year at the University of Michigan, it was difficult for her parents to afford to come to Ann Arbor to help Tammy through this crisis.
The Board for Student Publications is proud to announce the addition of two new scholarships:
A need-based scholarship established by former Michigan Daily business manager, Michael Hermanoff ’62 and his wife, Sandra in support of a Michigan Daily edit or business staff member in senior standing.

Exciting professional development opportunities are a hallmark of the Student Publications experience.

The Wasserstein Awards are made possible by a generous gift from Mr. Bruce Wasserstein (Daily Editor in Chief ’67) to honor his father and mother. Investment banker Bruce Wasserstein (1947-2009) was an Honors graduate who had a great affection for the University of Michigan, the Honors Program, and The Michigan Daily.
