Diponegoro University deployed the Undip Delegation Team at the Regional Student Art Week (Peksimida) of Central Java 2022, on Monday (22/8). The competitions that are participated in include Pop Song Covers (Male and Female), Dangdut Song Covers (Male), Poster Design, Photography, Painting, Comic Strip, Poetry Reading (Male and Female), Poetry Writing, Monologue, Dance, Play Writing, and Short Story Writing.

Prof. Faisal, S.E., M.Si., Ph.D. as Vice Rector I representing the Undip Rector said that the hidden talents possessed by students must be explored, even those that do not yet exist, continue to try to find their abilities. The important mission brought by the students who take part in Peksimida hopefully can give the best results and can be an inspiration for other students. Non-academic activities such as talent shows are also important indicators. Talented students who can go international will be a very calculated contributor.

“If our academic ability is good and optimal, especially if it is supported by other abilities or talents, it will certainly have a higher value. Undip hopes that what has been done, both training and other preparations, brings maximum results. It doesn’t need to be a burden, the important thing is being optimal, hopefully what we have been trying to give the best results. We are proud, the students participated in making extraordinary contributions, Undip thanked all parties involved in this activity and of course things like this should be highly appreciated,” said Prof. Faizal.

Meanwhile, Hanifa Maher Denny, S.KM., MPH., Ph.D. as Director of Academics, Student Affairs, and Alumni said that the students who took part in Peksimida were part of the contributors who could build the university’s reputation.

“We are also very grateful to all parties for their support for the success of the Peksimida delegation. These students are struggling to give the best for Undip. The main key to success is being healthy, starting with adequate rest. Besides the spirit will emerge from ourselves, another formula for success is being sincere and keep trying. This gift is a spiritual foundation for us which will bring the best we can offer to Undip. Keep fighting and praying, Undip Hebat, Undip Juara, Undip Jaya!,” she concluded. (Lin – Public Relations)
