UNAIR NEWS – Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) has been a magnet for many students who want to continue study to college. UNAIR keeps receiving visits and it is a proof that UNAIR is quite popular among students in many regions. This time, on May 3, the visit came from SMA negeri II Balikpapan.
There were 25 students received by Information and Public Relations Center (PIH) UNAIR in A Assembly Room, Management Office Building UNAIR. Drs. Bambang Edi Santoso from PIH, and Dr. Hario Puntodewo Siswanto, drh., M.App.Sc. from Student Admission Center (PPMB) UNAIR explained about UNAIR and the admission channel to study in UNAIR.
According to Paimin, S.Pd as the vice headmaster for Student Affairs SMAN II Balikpapan, students had difficulties to get information on universities. They cannot get motivation to continue study if they do not visit the universities. These visits are SMAN II Balikpapan’s ways to motivate its students.
“This visit to UNAIR was done to know UNAIR more. To introduce UNAIR to them as all this time they just know it through brochures,” said Paimin.
Through this visit, Paimin hoped there will be more students motivated to continue study at UNAIR because there was low interest in the past to study at UNAIR.
“Hopefully these two years ahead, students will be interested to get here. We also hope that there will be more our students admitted at UNAIR,” he said. (*)
