About Us





PINTU started out as a simple gathering by a group of Indonesian students who longed to spend time with their fellow countrymen.

Pelajar Indonesia NTU (PINTU) is an association for Indonesian students in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore. It was officially founded on 17 August 2002 and has now become one of the most established Indonesian students’ organization in Singapore. It is now run by the 15th executive committees and its members include undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students.

PINTU contributes to the livelihood of students in NTU, both Indonesians and non-Indonesians, by organising various activities and initiatives, as well as taking part in many school-organized activities. Needless to say, PINTU is also an active member of Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia di Singapura (PPIS) and is acknowleged by the Embassy of the Indonesian Republic in Singapore (KBRI Singapura).

Visions

  • To foster a community, based on unity and solidarity, that strives to develop a greater sense of belonging, awareness, and nationalism towards Indonesia.
  • To be a student-run organization which aspires its members to continually and holistically improve themselves.
  • To establish its position as a well-respected institution who gives positive societal impacts by maintaining harmonious relationship with other external bodies.

Missions

  • To organize bonding activities and events which allow the members to contribute back to Indonesia, learn more about national heritage, and most importantly to have fun together as one huge family.
  • To run various clubs, platforms, and interest groups that enable the members to discover their talents, indulge in their passions, and continually hone their skills.
  • To forge a close and mutual relationship with external parties such as the Embassy of Republic of Indonesia in Singapore, other Indonesian communities in Singapore, and administrative bodies of Nanyang Technological University.

Testimonials

Christiandy Franciscus

PINTU had been a place for me to grow, to learn, to express ideas, and to connect with people. It has full range of activities such as welcoming freshmen to have a smooth transition to university life, organizing competitive sport events, introducing Indonesian culture to society, organizing events to support Indonesian students' welfare, reaching out to the villages in Indonesia, and much more. I believe PINTU had been a platform for me to make impact to the society. In the midst of my tough journey in NTU, PINTU was there to encourage me and to balance out my stress. I feel that PINTU is not merely an organization, but it is a community where I could hold on, to achieve my fullest potential in my uni life.

Agustinus Benyamin Prasetyo

PINTU was a life-changing experience for all of us. Seeing it from the perspectives as a PINTU member, PINTU committee and externally as PPI Singapura lead me into a conclusion that PINTU is a solid, fun and enhancing community. PINTU welcomes people from diverse backgrounds and smoothly blends everyone into a perfect solid mix. It is awesomely fun with thousands of memories carved forever in our hearts. But most importantly, it changes our view, it prepares you for the future you perceived to be and it grows you up faster than anything you have experience so far.

Freddy

PINTU is a place to not only forge lifelong friendships with fellow Indonesians, but also to strive to become the best version of yourself. There are many PINTU activities that allow you to learn new things that you never imagined yourself doing. My university life would not be as fun or fulfilling without PINTU.

Reynard Adrianto

For me, it's a relief that even though we're abroad, through our friends and the PINTU community we are constantly reminded of our Indonesian heritage, practices and humour. PINTU is a community that bonds instantly. It's a family away from home.

Nathasya Michell

Home is not where you live but a place where people understand you. That is why I call PINTU a HOME!
