A Universidade Federal do Paraná é a mais antiga universidade do Brasil e símbolo de Curitiba. Envolta em uma história de lutas e conquistas desde 1912, a UFPR é referência no ensino superior para o Estado e para o Brasil.

Símbolo maior da intelectualidade paranaense, a Universidade demonstra sua importância e excelência através dos cursos de graduação, especialização, mestrado e doutorado, que são norteados pelo princípio da indissociabilidade entre Ensino, Pesquisa e Extensão. A função social da universidade é valorizada justamente através desse tripé, pois todo ensino, pesquisa e atividade de extensão deve devolver a esta comunidade, em forma de conhecimento, tecnologia e cultura, os recursos públicos que a permitem existir enquanto Instituição Federal de Ensino Superior.

Além dos campi em Curitiba, a UFPR está presente no interior e no litoral do estado, tendo papel ativo no desenvolvimento sócio-econômico e na qualidade de vida do paranaense, por meio do acesso à educação superior e das atividades desempenhadas pela comunidade acadêmica em prol da sociedade do Paraná e do Brasil.

This is an overview of Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.

Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.

Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.

Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.

Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.

Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.

This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.
