"UMM is built by big ideals so that it invites students to dream big too," said Prof. Dr. HA. Malik Fadjar, M.Sc. when filling out the recitation, Thursday (3/14), in the presence of graduate students. He explained how UMM stood on bamboo forests. The community does not believe that land like this can be transformed into a big university like today.
The member of the Advisory Council of the President of the Republic of Indonesia said that UMM had become a fertile ground for his students to dream and participate in building the nation. He asserted UMM Postgraduate students must also have aspirations. "Hang your dreams as high as the sky, if you fall, you will fall among the stars," he exclaimed quoting Bung Karno's words.
The Current development, mentioned the man who is also the Chair of the UMM Daily Supervisory Board, drove so fast. So that human needed change. While joking Malik said, today's basic human needs were full smartphone batteries. Followed by participants’ laughter. "Actually, we don't have a mobile phone that is not bad, we don't have a car or not, as long as we have aspirations," he said firmly.

He said that now Indonesian people tended to be colonized by technology. How the Indonesian people only became a market for technology trade by developed countries. Also, the mentality of the Indonesian people was too interpret themselves with the technology they have. "The development of the era is moving so fast, it must be balanced with our mentality which is not easily complacent," he continued.
Rector added Fauzan, M.Pd., now the community was a sick community. Where it was easy to sink into topics that were not qualified like gossip and do not want to know about important topics. "We must enrich literacy and become a pioneer to guide the Indonesian people towards the development of the era so that they are not far behind," he said. (Win)
