Dear Toads

As February is slowly turning into March, it is time for us to give you the latest news on what is going on within our lovely association! However, before we take on March we would like to make a brief recap on what has happened during February. To pick a few, UPaD did for instance arrange the visit of the Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström's to Uppsala together with UF and UPS on the 15th of February, we also increased our amount of social media accounts and downloaded Snapchat (@uppsalapad), and last but not least we have also planned a bunch of fun events for all of you during the spring!

The Board Informs: 
As usual, our lovely board have som notes they would like to share with all of you:

From Head of Communication:
The board members have now been presented individually on both Instagram and Facebook, and if you missed it, miss us or wanna know how to contact all of us, please visit our brand new Facebook album: The board of 2017

From Head of Events:
Today (the 26th of February) is the last day to apply for "Insparksgeneral" and this is something you do not want to miss! So if you are interested, please send an email to!

From Head of Education:
Our writing coaches are back for another semester, so if you find that academic writing in English is a true challenge UPaD is offering you the possibility to develop your academic writing skills! With the help of a native speaking coach you can get individual coaching in order to improve your academic English. No matter if the text is related to school or work you can get constructive criticism regarding grammar, choice of words and structure in English texts. For more information check out their Facebook page UPaD's Writing Coaches!

What's new?
It is not only the months that are changing, but we have some other changes to report as well:
  • As of the fall of 2017, Development studies B will only be held during the fall, meaning that if you were planning on studying this course you will no longer be able to do it during the spring!
  • We are now on Snapchat! Here we are gonna put up movies and pictures featuring the board, our work and our events among a whole bunch of other awesome stuff! So add us @Uppsalapad or use the snapcode and we will see you on Snapchat!

What's happening in March?
As mentioned above, we do have some awesome events planned for you during the spring, and two of them is happening in March:
  • On the 1st of March it is time for this year's first Pub Crawl! The crawl will have an ist theme, so come as anything that ends with ist and meet us at Gamla Torget at 17.45 on Wednesday for a night of fun!
  • On the 28th of March we have arranged a Lasergame Tournament at Latitude 59°! If you are interested in joining in, please visit the Facebook event (which is linked above) and show your interest so we know how many people we will be!

That was all for now, but keep your eyes and ears open because we have a whole lot of exciting things happening that we are super eager to share with you all!
But for now, keep rocking and we will hopefully see you all very soon!

Peace out,
Love from the board!
