UTEP Centennial Postmark

Postmark Pays Homage to UTEP’s Centennial Celebration

By on October 1, 2014

The United States Postal Service will offer a special postmark in honor of The University of Texas at El Paso’s Centennial Celebration on Friday, Oct. 10, during UTEP’s Homecoming Week. Anyone who wants to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind postmark can take the items they would like to have postmarked to the Union Building East, First Floor, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 10.

The Centennial Postmark is a wonderful opportunity to mail someone – or even yourself – a part of UTEP’s history.

All items must have sufficient First Class postage. Both stamps and pre-stamped envelopes will be sold on site, as well as Centennial postcards to send to friends and family members.

For those who will not be able to visit the UTEP campus on Oct. 10, there are two more ways to get the Centennial Postmark:

  1. Drop off your items prior to Oct. 10 at the UTEP Alumni Lodge on campus. All items must contain sufficient First Class postage.
  2. The Centennial Postmark will be available until Nov. 10 at the Main Post Office, 8401 Boeing. Just request the postmark at the Post Office counter.

IDEAS for the Centennial Postmark:

  • Send a letter or postcard to UTEP Alumni around the world so they can have a piece of UTEP history!
  • If you’re a student, write yourself a letter to be opened on your graduation day.
  • Start a special postmark collection. Many stamp collectors will be interested in this special postmark as well.
