Not just Fortuner who won by Hadi Sukrianto, the prize was more fascinating with Toyota Yaris on the podium. The grand prizes were 5 Motorcycle, 2 LED TV and 5 Mountain Bike with many other electronics door prizes. These prizes were presented by the sponsors and those who contributed to this event's success.
"We ask for your blessing, hopefully, this 55 years of UMM is not old age but young age. We not only want to live another hundred years, but we want to live another thousand years,"said UMM Rector Dr. Fauzan MPd in his remarks. The agenda began by hitting the smoke balls by Rector Fauzan, accompanied by Deputy Rector II, Dr. Nazaruddin Malik MSi.

In addition to professional golf tournaments, the Dies Natalis series is also filled with academic activities and reasoning. Like the Student Creativity Program (PKM) competition.
