What's happening in PresUniv

Published: 14 Aug 2019

President University Debate team (President University Debating Society) has successfully won the Indonesian Debating Competition which is part of the Equilibrium Science Fair (ESF) 2019 on 8 – 9 August 2019 at Universitas Udayana, Bali. This victory was achieved after they defeated the home team in the grand final. For this victory, Rey Abraham (International Relations 2018), Ni Wayan Frida Anjelina (International Relations 2018), and I Putu Bagus Dimas Pranata (International Relations 2018) have the right to bring home the Bali’s Governor Trophy.

Aside from being the champion as a group, all members of the team also won all individual awards, with Dimas grasping The Best Speaker award, while his teammates Rey and Frida collectively held the Second Best Speaker award. This means our team was able to take the competition by storm and gotten every award they could possibly get.

The road to victory was not an easy one according to them, as even after registering they had to submit an essay in order to compete in the competition. Knowing the fact that they will meet many intense opponents, they prepare everything diligently. They did joint training, alongside the President Univesity team who joined NUDC to hone their skills, which helped them a lot in facing opponents in ESF. Ultimately in the d-day, they were able to best the likes of USU, UNUD, UNSRI, IPB and smoothly sailed to win the competition. This adds yet another accomplishment to President University Debating Society’s list of accolades this year, all thanks to the hard work of everyone involved in President University Debating Society.
