A site worth viewing

UPF Lund proudly presents our new website, upflund.se!

Our new website features more pictures, content, and improved user experience for visitors. Those familiar with the old webpage will note that the basic functionality is still around, although some new clever functions have been added, making it easier to access information.

The ambition has been to create a forum that better reflects the continuous work and new ideas that defines UPF Lund. The new website offers more up-to-date content with both new articles and pictures from the association. Updates have been an ongoing project throughout the past year, carried out through a team specifically created for the project. Julia Bergström, the leader of the project group, points out that every member of the team has contributed with their unique set of talents to ensure a well-working website for the association.

“Hopefully the updated website will better reflect the professionalism that permeates UPF in all other aspects”, Julia says.

“A bearing thought during the work has been to make the website as functional and attractive as possible, for all users. All text and functions that didn’t have a purpose were not welcome in the new website. We hope this update will make it easier for members and visitors to discover new sides of UPF Lund”.

Though the old website has worked out well, UPF Lund wants to increase the online presence of the association. A reason for this update has been to give the association’s events a bigger place online. The new website provides a comprehensive list of upcoming events, as well as the possibility to post event photos, without having to turn to Facebook.

“This new website will provide a new leap forward in greatly improving our public relation capabilities”, says Anahita Nicoobayan Shiri, UPF president for the year of operations 2015-2016.

“It will provide a comprehensive view of the goings-on of our association, with easy access to articles, radio shows, blog posts and other important information. Content will be user-friendly and easy to access for old and new members alike, as well as curious visitors.”

UPF Lund expresses its sincere gratitude towards the project group behind the update for all the work and dedication they have put in to making this idea a reality:

UPF is already a vital part in Lund, both for student life and the discussion on foreign affairs. Hopefully, the new webpage will make sure this is also reflected online for years to come!
