Journalistic Student Activity Unit Declares “AKSARA”
AKSARA used to be two different organizations from two different faculties. They are MasyarakatJurnalisitk (Masjur) Telkom which came from Engineering Faculty and Jurnalistik IMT which came from Economics and Business Faculty. This integration, with mutual commitment, is the action of actualizing a letter from IV vice rector that requires a student activity unit in Telkom University. So, in order to be a student unit activity in journalistic, Masjur and Jurnalistik IMT decided to integrate.
The chief of AKSARA Tel-U, Oki Maulana, was explaining the reason regarding AKSARA as their name. AKSARA was taken from Indonesia General Dictionay which means “word.” “Aksara means word according to the dictionary. In this student unit activity, every member is a word which could construct a beautiful sentence. For that, we need to unite as one” says Oki which were interviewed during the event.
Oki, who is student of 2011 Physics Engineering hoped that the declaration could be the media to promote the existence of AKSARA who could accommodate the interest of Tel-U student in journalistic. Besides that, Oki hopes that other student unit activity could follow AKSARA to actually unite with the other faculty. “I hope our actions could follow by the other student unit activity in Tel-U to be united.”
