Rector: Students Must Not Become “Butterfly” Students

“You are the lucky ones. Among tens of thousands of people who want to study, you are among those who successfully get the chance. So, don’t waste the chance you get”, said the Chancellor of UIN Antasari Banjarmasin Prof. Dr. H. Mujiburrahman, MA when giving a speech in front of thousands of new students at the opening of the Introduction to Academic and Student Culture (PBAK) of UIN Antasari Banjarmasin, located on the Learning Resource Center (PSB) hall, Thursday (07/30/2019).

Furthermore, Mujib also said that PBAK activities were deliberately designed for introducing two things: developing academic performance and fulfilling student potential. “Maximize your time to develop your academic potential and interests and talents. You must not become “butterfly” (read: Kupu-Kupu/kuliah pulang) students, study then go home, study then go home, just like that”, he stressed.

“The annual compulsory activity that carries the theme of ‘Intellectual Transformation towards Cosmopolitan Students whose Moral and Social Consciousness’ will be divided into 3 parts and held for 10 days from 30 July to 9 August 2019 with 2779 new students”, said the Chairman of the Organizing Committee.

The Chairman of the DEMA of UIN Antasari Muhammad Rizali in his remarks also conveyed to new students that UIN Antasari not only facilitates academic activities, but also student activities. For this reason, according to him, new students are expected to be able to maximize their time while studying at UIN Antasari Banjarmasin as good as possible, not only going to campus and then going home, but also must actively develop their interests and talents through student organizations.
