Meanwhile, Chief of Islamic Communication and Broadcasting Student Association 2017/2018 Haikal Ma’mum shared students’ activities outside class. “This association is a forum to accommodate students in various divisions such as religion, journalism, and counseling. We also possess an Islamic Communication Community directing students to their interests such as public speaking, radio broadcasting, and film,” mentioned Haikal.

He also explained how to encourage students to be interested in events organized by the association is by conducting activities in line with students’ interests. “No one like being forced to do something so that we have to conceptualize the activities as students’ interests,” he maintained.
