In celebration of the anniversary of Tarumanagara Univeristy Faculty of Communication, that falls on June 22nd 2017, students from this Faculty organized an event called Communication Week 2017. The event took place at Emporium Pluit Mall North Jakarta, and was enlivened by a number of well-known public figures namely: singer Delon, Kevin Hendrawan, David Rizal, Maria Christy and Raynaldi.
The stage of ComWeek located in the lobby, becomes the center of attention to the visitors of the shopping center. The event, which was held from June 19th – 22nd 2017, was filled with all kinds of activities, such as ComWeek Got Talent, games, dance performances, talkshows, Q&As and also live music. The runner up of Indonesian Idol, Delon, was one of the celebrities that came and enlivened the show by performing a couple of popular songs.
According to Devita, the Head Committee of ComWeek, the event is held to introduce communications as a field of study to the public, particularly UNTAR’s Faculty of Communication. “The event is intentionally held in a mall, so that it will be easily discovered by a wider community,” stated Devita.
The dean of the Faculty of Communication, Dr. Riris Loisa, states that events such as this are routinely organized by students of Faculty of Communication to foster their entrepreneurial spirit since college. “We learn how to organize and execute an event in such a way that we can render some profits,” added Devita.
