The University of Cambodia Student Senate (UCSS) broadcasted its first weekly student radio talk show, “Life and Study,” on Southeast Asia Radio (SEA Radio, FM 106 MHz) on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The radio show is broadcasted in Khmer every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and focuses on different topics relating to general knowledge and academics. UCSS believes this is an exciting opportunity for listeners to hear youth perspectives and critical dialogue on how to improve one’s life and studies.
The hosts for the Saturday show are Tep Theary and Sann Sethvitou, and for the Sunday show, the hosts are Chan Ratha and Khov Ea Hai. The UC students are responsible for researching the topics and coordinating the program.
The following UC students, who are also UCSS members, are the organizers of the “Life and Study” radio talk show: Chan Ratha, Chhay Daroth, Khov Ea Hai, Kong Chhomkeovoleak, Mon Doungmonytath, Ry Sovanna, Sann Sethvitou, Teang Vannika, and Tep Theary.
This UCSS project has many objectives. First, it is designed to encourage students to love studying, so they will not quit school and are eager to complete their studies in higher education. Secondly, the program aims to share experiences related to academics and general knowledge to the public. Finally, “Life and Study” will expose university students to the medium of public communication so they may gain experience in public speaking and become more confident and effective communicators.
|SEA Radio has been instrumental in helping UCSS make the “Life and Study” radio show a success and a valuable learning opportunity.|
Listeners who would like to call in and express their ideas on the topics may call phone number 092 172 106 or 011 841 106. Good ideas will be recorded and shared on the radio talk show.
UC invites everyone to tune in and listen to youth perspectives on “Life and Study.”
