The forerunner of the birth of Menwa Ugrasena was at Unud during the time of Prof. IB Mantra as Unud Chancellor. In his journey, Menwa experienced quite a number of ups and downs in his activities.

I Ketut Suyasa expressed his gratitude for his appointment as an honorary member of the Menwa Corps, in the future his party will continue to strive to develop student activities in order to maintain the integrity of the unitary state of the Republic of Indonesia. Caring for and protecting the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia is our responsibility to the fighters who have founded this Homeland.

It is hoped that this synergy will create great strength, both in terms of ability, knowledge, and work for the community, nation and state.
