Thank you

The UTPA ended the academic year with its customary participation in the Portugal Day Parade. It was extremely exciting to see the positive reaction of the portuguese community applauding post secondary education. A big thank you goes out to everyone in the community that helped us this past year; professors, sponsors, family and friends. We hope to continue to strengthen our relationship with all of you in the coming year.

Meet and Greet Event

Hello All!

We are coming to you with news of our first event of the year!

This Friday, October 12th, 2012 @ 2:00 pm we will be hosting a Meet and Greet!

 

Where you ask? You can find us in Wilson Hall (40 Willcocks St) in the basement, which houses the student life center and our office!

This event  is designed to give new and old members alike an opportunity to meet the new exec team, discover our office space and get up to speed about what events we have planned for the year! This is also the perfect opportunity to tell us what kinds of events you would like to see us organize over the course of the year. We are so excited to hear your ideas! Oh, and let’s not forget,  there will be delicious treats and refreshments too! Be sure to swing by and bring your friends along!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

PS. Here is the event flyer, check it out!

Welcome

Welcome!!!

On behalf of all the 2012-2013 exec council of the University of Toronto Portuguese Association I would like to welcome you to our website and to what promises to be a fantastic academic year!

The UTPA believes strongly in education, such that this year our motto is “Education is Power” but we are also passionate about our language and culture. We strive to preserve our roots in the U of T community, which is a very difficult task given the level of multiculturalism present amidst the students.

For all students interested in this association, getting involved is a great way to make friends and to establish connections that will come in handy in the future. The Portuguese community in Toronto is known as a tight-knit one; always helping one another and making newcomers feel as if they were back home. This is essentially how the UTPA is as well! We are always welcoming new members and happy to help anyone in need. Our home is your home! It may be small but there’s room for all who share a love for their culture.

Let’s celebrate our roots together this year!
