Radio drama is a competition that obligates the participant to create an epic drama by combining the voices with music editing and voice effect that is interesting and can create dramatic atmosphere that can be felt by the listener without having to watch the visual of the drama. “A Reconciliation,” the work of Faculty of Cultural Studies’ students is able to complete all of the aspects needed to create an epic radio drama. Other than that, Universitas Brawijaya also got the award as “Best Institution” in the final of Asian English Olympic 2018 yesterday.  [Via/DT/MSH/PSIK FIB]
