There are 11 students of Universitas Gadjah Mada having passed selection for Super Camp I event. Super Camp is an event for outstanding students to build understanding and strategy as well as job sharing to create student good climate. It will select one best student to compete nationally.
UGM Student Affairs Director, Dr. Senawi, M.P., said these students were the best at faculty level. They are expected to be the role model for other students.
“The ideal UGM students are not those with high GPA only, but more than that. It can be seen in their contributions to the country,” he said on campus on (6/2), opening the event.
Senawi said Indonesia was having a leadership crisis. Instead of leading a prosperous life, many of the society are living in poverty.
“This Republic needs leaders who are not selfish, but ones who care about others,” said Senawi.
Head of Student Creativity Sub-directorate, Ahmad Agus Setiawan, S.T., MSc., Ph.D., added the Student Affairs Directorate was committed to training outstanding students in order that they make achievements nationally. Last year, UGM came third nationally. This year, hopefully the first rank can be achieved.
“To make that dream come true, we‘re trying optimally so that all our aspirations and wants are realised,” said Agus.
Ahmad Agus said the selection of students was a follow-up to the faculty’s selection. There are three components for assessment here: portfolio of student achievement, English competence, and presentation of scientific works.
The eleven students who passed Super Camp I are: Alwan Hafizh, Rizqika Edni Doni Achsan, Andreas Gandhi Hendra P, Hibran Sabila Maksum, and Andy Aulia Prahardika (Faculty of Engineering). Also, Layung Sekar Sih Wikanthi (Faculty of Pharmacy), Lintang Sagoro (Faculty of Medicine), Santika Nindya Hapsari Wibowo (Faculty of Economics and Business), Yoesep Budianto (Faculty of Geography), as well as Fety Andrianing and Aulia Rizka (Vocational School).
