Sports Day was a platform for our BINUS STAR and iBuddy+ participants to connect beyond their academic pursuits. It went beyond physical activities; it was about building relationships, fostering a sense of community, and creating memories that transcend cultural and geographical boundaries. The event successfully combined the thrill of physical competition with the intellectual stimulation of the brain challenge, reinforcing the idea that a healthy mind and body contribute to a holistic and fulfilling university experience. This is a testament to the university’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive campus environment.
