March Undergraduate Global Student of the Month
Monday, March 15, 2021
The CAGLE and the Spears School of Business are excited to announce the 2021 March Undergraduate Global Student of the Month is Felicia Mudjialim.
A native of Surabaya, Indonesia, Mudjialim is studying for her bachelor’s in Management Sciences and Information Systems at Oklahoma State University.
“I decided to study at OSU because it offers great networking opportunities and an incredible education at an affordable price,” Mudjialim said. “Along with a great education, OSU offers lots of programs and opportunities for first-generation students. When I visited campus, I enjoyed the scenery, and the people were so friendly.”
Mudjialim’s home town Surabaya is the second-largest city in Indonesia, after the capital, Jakarta. Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and the largest archipelago in the world, consisting of more than 17,000 islands. It is the fourth most populous country in the world, with a population of 270 million.
Indonesia has a rich history with more than 300 ethnic groups and influences of the Dutch, Portugues, Chinese, the Middle East and India. Along with having the largest Muslim population in the world, Buddhism, Christianity and Hinduism are also widely practiced.
Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colorful in the world. Popular foods include nasi goreng, nasi campur, chicken satay and oxtail soup. Because Indonesia is surrounded by water, seafood is prevalent in multiple dishes.
An active member on campus, Mudjialim is highly involved in various organizations on campus, including Delta Sigma Pi, the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers, the Inclusion Leadership Program, F1rst2Go, and is a student assistant in the Watson Graduate School of Management.
For her, OSU has been a great experience, and she feels extremely close to the OSU community. From homecoming and walk around to her classes and Spears Business, Mudjialim loves how the university comes together and celebrates the diverse Cowboy family.
“Being able to experience two cultures growing up has allowed me to understand the importance of diversity and inclusion,” Mudjialim said. “Talking about the differences in cultures and understanding the different perspectives are great ways to share with other students to promote a more inclusive community.”
