The Head of IKAFE Undip, Saiful Bahri, revealed that the Undip FEB Golf Tournament in Bogor Raya is the first event of FEB Undip held outside the province of Central Java. Holding the event outside Semarang City where FEB Undip Campus is located, Bogor is chosen in order to facilitate the consolidation of many FEB alumni who live around Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, dan Bekasi. “By holding an event in Bogor, more alumni can be involved in contributing to their alma mater,” said Saiful Bahri.

Behind the success of this event, Saiful said that at first most of them felt unsure, given the committee’s limited resources. “But Alhamdulillah, it turns out that the supports continually come from various parties, especially the seniors, that made the committee and the entire IKAFE board feel more confident. Most of the participants were satisfied and asked that this event be held regularly in Bogor Raya,” he said.

According to him, the most memorable thing is when FEB alumni play golf as if they are still students and forget for a while their current age. For this reason, as chairman of the alumni, Saiful really hopes that events like this can be held again next year.

The Head of FEB Undip Golf Tournament Committee 2021, Tedhi Irawan, admitted that he was grateful since the event could run smoothly. This tournament was attended by 144 players consisting of the majority of Undip Faculty of Economics and Business alumni, and other alumni from Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Engineering,  Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Faculty of Animal and Agricultural Sciences, Faculty of Science and Mathematics, and other faculties as well as several invited participants and sponsors. “We express gratitude to the alumni and sponsors for organizing this activity.
