“The four-year journey of studying at Diponegoro University was like walking along the pages of a map that guided me to explore the complexity of knowledge and social dynamics. Throughout this journey, I have not only gained knowledge but also valuable moments, built strong relationship foundations, and achieved new opportunities. Studying at Undip is not just a matter of getting a degree, but a colorful journey that shapes me into the best version of myself.”

“One of the biggest life lessons that I got while studying and which I am very grateful for is understanding the importance of balancing education and organization. I realize that success is not only determined by academic knowledge alone but also by the ability to apply and test these abilities, as well as being able to understand dynamics in preparation for facing real-world challenges. So, it’s not just about being a smart book; it’s about being street-smart, too! Keep that balance, and you’ll be the MVP in both arenas!” concluded Devina. (Sudanta – Undip Public Relations)
