UP alumni launches UPAA Western Australia

On November 11, 2023, we successfully launched UP Alumni Association – Western Australia with the aim of introducing the association to the broader community of UP alumni and Filipinos in WA. We presented our association’s objectives and proposed short-term and long-term activities. It was a memorable afternoon filled with good fun, reminiscing about our days in UP.

A total of 97 membership applications were received, coming from alumni of all UP campuses and graduates from Batch 1957 to 2018.
To those who missed the launch, we hope to see you on our next event. We can’t wait to share with you our plans for 2024.

Here are some photos from the launch.

Credits go to all members who shared their photos. Feel free to tag yourself and your friends.
