Stamps from around the world turned into one-of-a-kind map

Using canceled stamps she got from international student applications, Betsy Pike — now an admission coordinator for University College — made this world map when she was a work-study student in the Office of International Student Admission. Pike (BA ’03) says the recent increase in online applications results in far fewer exotic stamps making their way to the international admission mailbox. DU currently has 1,329 international students representing 93 countries; the University received almost 5,000 international applications for the 2011–12 school year.

  1. Very cool! I love it.

  2. This map is really cool, and a great use of exotic stamps that otherwise would have been put in the trash with the envelope. Another brilliant, creative Pike!
