“Education organized by higher education institutions does not only focus on developing practical skills but also on developing mindsets, soft skills, good analytical skills that involve universal beliefs and common sense. So that as the younger generation, we should have a strong desire to continue learning and be open to new ideas and ideas,” said Astrid Karana Pramesthi, a graduate of the Faculty of Law, Diponegoro University with a GPA of 3.84.
“The process of learning and self-development is not only limited to the classroom, but can be obtained through many other media such as organizations, volunteer activities, competitions, internships and so on. These learning media make us know how to be individuals who are open to new ideas, able to accept opinions even for opinions that are opposite to what we think are true, develop mindsets, become adaptive, become individuals who are able to tolerate differences in any aspect, are able to manage time, and other things that will certainly be very useful for life in the future. For this reason, it is not only the learning process in the classroom that is important for us to participate in, but also non-academic activities which will also give us the opportunity to develop in other aspects beyond practical abilities,” she continued.
