As one of the competition participants, Nabila Putri said that Undip, as one of the state universities in Indonesia, provides more opportunities for prospective students who have achievements in academic and non-academic fields through the Selection of Excellent Achievement Students (SBUB). Nabila is one of the XIth KRAMSI participants who entered Undip via the SBUB Sports path.
“Education is essential, but learning things outside of education is also no less important. Non-academic activities are an opportunity to gain experience and learn new things, socialize, and prepare yourself for the world of work,” she said.
“Undip always provides full support for Outstanding Students who will take part in the competition. I received material and moral support from Undip. Undip also gives awards to students who excel in their respective fields,” she concluded. (LW/Bobby – Public Relations)
