Book Description: “Jamaica: Paradise and Paradox”

“Jamaica’s exquisite beauty that encompasses verdant hillsides, rolling plains, pristine coastal areas dotted with white sand beaches incessantly caressed by the wind and bathed by turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, plus the ‘irie vibes’ of Jamaicans collectively conspire to make the Island a unique place on planet Earth. Political Independence from Britain in 1962 ignited hope of a better future for all Jamaicans. Indeed, Jamaica made significant early progress, was regarded as the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean,’ and a positive example for newly-Independent countries. But now, there is pain in paradise! Jamaica is a paradox! Although still stunningly beautiful, and has registered some notable successes, Jamaica’s dominant portrait is of a traumatized nation hobbled by many problems, the most troubling of which is a full-spectrum crime problem resulting in one of the highest murder rates globally. The author was born after Independence, and in this two-volume book, he discusses Jamaica’s challenges and offers prescriptions for restoring the health of his sick homeland.”

Over Seventy (70) Alumni of UTech, Jamaica visited our campus today, Wednesday 2nd May, 2018 to share goodwill with our University on a special and important occasion in the life of our University.

Though inappropriate to share event details online, we wanted to say a BIG “Thank You” to all our Alumni—, those who came by, those who were late and maintained good humour, and those based locally and overseas who couldn’t attend, yet emailed to wish us well.

Your LOVE for your Alma Mater couldn’t be more tangible. LOOK…Faculty of Science & Sport (FOSS)  Alumni Couple Gavin Palmer and wife Neco Gordon-Palmer ‘2015 showed up with Baby Alumna Naomi Palmer all of 1 year and 4 months. She came to check out her future University!!!

The event feedback was A1A. Our #UTechJamaica #Alumni did us proud!

UTech, Jamaica cannot THANK YOU enough!
