Visitation 2023: A Means to Innovate and Establish Relations between HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA and HIMASI UNTAG
The activity was then followed by
a prayer, led by Oky Agus Sarvita, a member of HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA. Following
the prayer, the activity was continued with presentations of divisions and work
programmes of both student associations. The first presentation was conducted
by HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA with its divisions, such as Main Coordinator, Public
Relations, Information and Technology, Language Development, Research, and
Skill and Talent Division. The presentation session was then continued by
HIMASI UNTAG with its 4 divisions, namely Communication and Information,
Community Service, Education and Culture, and Self Development Division.
Following the presentation, there was a Q&A session where members of both
student associations ask and answer some "curious" questions from
members of both student associations.
After the Q&A session was
done, there was a "gift-giving" session from both student
associations, where the representatives of both student associations exchanged
keepsake gifts. The activity was then continued by a discussion and sharing session
of both HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA and HIMASI UNTAG. During this session, each
division of both student associations met with relevant counterparts of their
divisions. Then, the members of each division got engaged in a deeper
discussion and thought exchange about each of their divisions and work
programmes. This discussion session was then followed by a closing remark and a
prayer led by the MC. After that, the members of HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA were
guided by the members of HIMASI UNTAG to have a tour guide of the campus. Subsequently,
the activity ended with a documentation session, where members of both student
associations took some photographs and bid farewell.
As with any other event or
activity, the Visitation programme was not run without any challenges and
obstacles. Windi Nur Khafifah, the chief committee of Visitation, stated during
an interview that there were some challenges during the course of the activity.
"I think the most significant challenge was the process of choosing which
student association of another university we are going to visit, as it is
required to find a student association that is relevant and has quite the same
work programmes," she said. She also added that there were obstacles
during the day of the activity, "There were some small miscommunications
between the committee from both parts, so the event had to be done late, and
there was some agenda sequence in the rundown that was not as it should
be." However, the overall activity was successfully held and both
HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA and HIMASI UNTAG cooperated well to succeed the activity.
From this activity, there are surely hopes that are expected to be accomplished by HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA. "It is hoped that members of HIMAPRODI PBI UINSA could get new insight and knowledge from our thought exchange and discussion with HIMASI UNTAG and apply those to their divisions and work programme." said the chief committee. Moreover, it is hoped that this activity will be one of the means to establish and improve relations with HIMASI UNTAG so that both student associations could have a better partnership in the future.
