Salutations, ADC!

This year ALSA UNPAD English Challenge, we sent 2 teams to compete on the 18th to 20th of February.

ATMA A then proceeded to the Octo Finals round and competed against PCU B under the motion “TH supports the use of clone troopers”. Unfortunately, ATMA A must fell with a very close margin. Nonetheless, ADC is very proud of you. As for individual speaker, Ariya snatched the 7th best speaker. Well done for everyone. Let us train harder and harder for the upcoming competitions!

GMDT 2016

It’s that time of the year again, the annual Gadjah Mada Debating Tournament! Different from previous years, this year GMDT used BP system.


The four teams we sent this year consist of  Shannon (FH ’14) and Esther (FE ’15) for ATMA 1, Christoper Purnama (FE ’15) and Ariya Sidharta (FH ’15) for ATMA 2, Christine Clarissa (FE ’15) and Esther Dahlia (FE ’15) for ATMA 3, and last but not least Griffin Armando (FH ’15) and Irvin Felix (FE ’15) represented ATMA 4.


The delegates arrived at Jogja, 2 days before the competition which was held on the 5th to 6th of November. During our limited spare time, we had a very fun and enjoyable moments. At night, we went to Alun-Alun Jogjakarta, we had our ‘lesehan’ dinner there, and rode a becak full of lights (must do things when you’re around here). On the following day, we visited the iconic Malioboro to buy some souvenirs and had lunch at the famous Roaster and Bear Café.


And so the competition began on Saturday, the 5th. After facing four challenging motions in four preliminary rounds against several powerhouses’ debaters,  ATMA 1 was the only team who broke with the standing of 12th, holding 7VPs. As for ATMA 2, ATMA 3, and ATMA 4, they got the overall 6VPs, 6VPs, and 4VPs consecutively. Well done for the rest of the team.


The journey for ATMA 1 continued the next day. Eventually, ATMA 1 lost at quarter finals under the motion “THBT racial minorities in the USA should support the Three Strikes Law” with them being the 3rd. But after all, a very good job guys!


Before going back home, we decided to try the famous gelato from Il Tempo Del Gelato which tastes were so good. After all, GMDT 2016 has been very fun and exciting both in competitions and travelling. See you in GMDT 2017, and let’s work harder in another tournaments ahead! Cheers.


Opening the month of September, Universitas Sebelas Maret Solo held its first national debate competition with British Parliamentary system. As for Atma Jaya Debating Club, it was a good opportunity to sharpen our 2015 batch’s skills on debating and make them accustomed to BP. Therefore, we sent two teams to the competition that was held on the 2nd to 4th of September. Our delegates for ATMA A were Ariya Sidharta (FH ’15), Griffin Armando (FH ’15), and Ray Fabian (FPsi ’15) as N1, and ATMA B were Esther Dahlia (FE ’15), Emily Prasetyo (FPsi ’15), and Lieonardo (FE ’15) as N1.

Here are the match up :

1st Round











2nd Round











3rd Round






4th Round











After 4 preliminary rounds, both ATMA A and ATMA B broke and proceeded to quarter finals. ATMA A managed to broke 2nd  with 9 VPs, and ATMA B broke 10th with 7 VPs. As for N1s, Ray managed to broke 7th. The next day, the battle continue and both teams were against each other at quarter with the matchup :







Unfortunately, ATMA B must stopped here. But, the good and exciting news is that ATMA A went smoothly to grand finals and got 4th position. Yay! We are very pleased to know that. Congratulation for all of you and we are proud that each of our delegates had put in great efforts and brought home 3rd runner up title! Thank you and good luck for another competitions ahead!
