First of all, on behalf of IFSA LC UGM, I would like to give my warmest welcome to the visitors who visit IFSA LC UGM website. At the age of 14 years, IFSA LC UGM is launching a new website to support our programs in order to bridge the aspirations of forestry students from local to international level. As a student, we also have an obligation to learn how to deal with forestry issues globally in order to become a student who will be able to give beneficial contributions to the country in future. Therefore, we start performing some little things as learning and our first step to actively participate in the facing global problems. On this website, the visitors will get better understanding about IFSA and IFSA LC UGM and gaining more informations about the activities we have done, are doing and will do. We hope,  by visiting this website you can feel a wonderful sense of being forestry student, and gain both knowledge and experiences in every activities we hold. It is my great pleasure to have you all here. Last but not least..

 

“Do not ever think that being student is a time for having fun and frolic, it is the great time and place for someone who wants to build their character in being able to serve to the country in the future”

 

Thank you.

 

Best Regards,

Adhitya Wisnu Pradhana
