“Recently, I thought of deleting my Facebook account and start using Twitter, but realised it’s not easy. Facebook has become like the boyfriend I no longer like but am scared to dump because I’ve invested so much time in the relationship.” — Manasa Rao Saarloos, author

The following day several international media houses reported on these Pew findings, including the British Broadcasting Corporation and The Guardian. The Pew research found, among other things, that YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat were the most popular online platforms utilised by US teens. (more…)

Dear Members of the UTech, Jamaica Alumni Community,

We encourage you to support the 16th Annual hosting of the Relay for Life by the Jamaica Cancer Society. The event will be held from 6 pm on Saturday June 2, to 6 am on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Of course the main reason to support Relay for Life is the support we provide for the fight against cancer, through the Jamaica Cancer Society, and remembering cancer survivors as well as the families of those who lost their battle with the disease.

Still it doesn’t hurt to note the special connection Relay for Life 2018 has with our University, UTech, Jamaica. (more…)

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!
