UPAAA also raises funds for UP students impacted by typhoons. In 2021, through the UPdanay Donation Dive for Typhoon Odette (Rai), UPAAA raised $1,500 for immediate disaster relief and rehabilitation of damaged homes of UP Visayas constituents. This includes a $500 donation from UPAA Central California led by President Susan Mendiola.

We are your family away from home.

Connect with other UP alums in the US, grow your network, exchange ideas and career tips, and share stories and experiences. (Membership starts at $50/year, and your fees fund the UPAAA Stipend Scholarships.)
