As the oldest study program in FISIP, Public Administration is inseparable from the existence of cultures that are continuously preserved and maintained from time to time by each generation. This culture often becomes the characteristic inherent in every student of Public Administration and differentiates them from other majors at FISIP. What are these cultures? Immediately, we’ll discuss below.
Public hooligan is a call for the supporters of the Public Administration. Usually, the Public Hooligan shout the chants or yells to encourage the students of Public Administration who are competing. This Public Hooligan is inseparable from the haka dance at the end of the session. This is intended to encourage those students of Public Administration after the match, whether they win or lose.
Haka is one of the Public cultures in the form of an encouraging dance. This dance has been taught from generation to generation by previous generations and is always taught to the new students of Public Administration in particular. This is expected that the Public culture is preserved and will not be just forgotten. Usually, Haka is done during the moments that require the enthusiasm. Such as, the faculty inauguration, supporters , and other activities. Haka is the only encouraging dance that characterizes and differentiates the Public Administration students from other departments in FISIP UNDIP.
Public Teka is an annual event to welcome the attendance or arrival of the new students of the Public Administration study program. This Public Taka event is held to strengthen the bond among the Public Administration students and introduce the new students to the seniors, as well as the alumni who had previously been the students of FISIP UNDIP Public Administration. Nevertheless, this year Public Teka should be held online due to the pandemic period. Usually, the implementation of this Public Teka lasts for 3 days and 2 nights and is held with an overnight activity which is intended to strengthen the relations among generations in Public Administration.
Those are some of the Cultures of Public Administration. What about the culture of Public Administration that you know that we haven’t discussed above?
