On Monday (11 April 2016), housed in Senate Meeting Room, Yogyakarta State University (YSU), a farewell party was held to accommodate 4 2015 Best Employees and 11 selected representatives of student organizations in YSU who are about to depart to Malaysia. They are designated to attend sit-in program in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). The most outstanding officers will join the program from 12 to 21 April 2016 (10 days), while the students will attend the program from 12 to 25 April 2016 (14 days).
Siti Amironah, S.T., in the capacity as the 2015 Best Employees from Faculty of Education (FE) YSU, asked for leave and blessing to join the sit-in. “We ask for guidance and direction from the Supervisors so that we can keep up the good name of Yogyakarta State University, and we do hope to acquire valuable knowledge we can apply after going back to the university”, she added.
Bisma Putra Aprilianta, in his capacity as the Chief of Student Executive Board of FE YSU, expressed his gratitude for the 5 day pre-departure where he could grab information related with UPM and Malaysia in general. “Hopefully, we could gather so much information and disseminate it to other YSU students. We ask for leave. Within 14 days, we have great expectation to do the best for the university and give good impression to UPM” he revealed.
As the respective Rector of YSU, Prof. Dr. Rochmat Wahab, M.Pd., ascertained that YSU is getting improved every year, and the improvement is inseparable of the contribution from the related chiefs and leaders who have supervised the officers. “Each selected participant is going to prove their contribution for sure. They are all selected objectively and we do hope this sit-in program could give credit to your knowledge and skill,” the Rector declared.
“On the move to the world class university” is not just a mere slogan. YSU attempts to show its commitment to make the officers be exposed to as many as international experience, one of ways is to send the 2015 Best Employees and student representatives to join sit-in in Malaysia. (Laksa)
