|Thursday, 30 August 2012|
Students who actively engage in student organization at both internal and external campus tend to have a wide insight and network after graduating from university. Student organization provides many advantages for active students including self- management skill and communication skill.
This statement was revealed by Erwin Moeslimin Nasution, SH., MH, UII alumnae and the member of House Representative (DPR RI). He was the speaker at stadium general of UII freshmen orientation (PESTA 2012), on Thursday (8/30) at ‘Prof. KH Kahar Mudzakkir’ Auditorium UII.
Erwin, who was the former President of UII Student’s Council period of 1984-1987, in his speech motivated the new students to actively engage in student organizations at UII.
"Many of UII alumnae are now occupying strategic position in Indonesian government including Prof. Mahfud MD (Chairman of Indonesian Constitutional Court). As long as I know, he was student activist in several student organizations at UII such as HIMMAH, HMI, Muhammadiyah and NU.” He explained
The atmosphere of student organizations in UII was marked by the establishment of HMI as the first Islamic organization in Indonesia. Therefore, UII freshmen are urged to develop their skills by joining student organizations.
"Moreover, Ifdhal Kasim, Chairman of National Human Rights Commission and Abdul Haris Semendawai, Chairman of the Witness and Victims Protection Agency (LPSK) are UII alumnae who were also student activist at UII.“ He added
Addressing this question, Erwin stated that students can play roles by actively taking part in academic activities and community.
