UNS — The Eid al-Fitr 1443 Hijri was celebrated almost a week ago. However, the atmosphere of the celebration of the Muslim feast still enchants the people in Indonesia. One of them is the tradition of hospitality performed to parents, relatives, friends, and neighbors, including colleagues, leaders, or superiors in an institution. This tradition was also preserved by the leaders of Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta. On Saturday (7/5/2022), the leaders of UNS visited the residence of the Former UNS Rectors for the period 2003-2011, Prof. Dr. Muchammad Syamsulhadi, dr., Sp.KJ(K) and the UNS Rector for the 2011-2019 period, Prof. Dr. Ravik Karsidi, M.S.
The UNS entourage is led by the current Rector of UNS, Prof. Dr. Jamal Wiwoho, along with all the UNS Vice-Rectors, namely Prof. Dr. Ahmad Yunus (Vice-Rector for Academic and Student Affairs), Prof. Dr. Bandi (Vice-Rector for General and Human Resources Affairs), Prof. Dr. Kuncoro Diharjo (Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation Affairs), and Prof. Dr. rer.nat. Sajidan (Vice-Rector for Planning, Partnership, Business, and Information Affairs). The entourage also included Faculty Deans, representatives of the Dharma Wanita Persatuan (DWP) UNS, and several Directors at UNS.
The entourage departed from UNS Inn at 07.30 WIB and reached the residence of the 6th UNS Rector at 09.05 WIB in Klaten. Upon their arrival, the group was welcomed by Mrs. Syamsulhadi (dr. Maria Farida) and her daughter. Additionally, Dr. Hidayat Hendarsyah, Prof. Syamsulhadi’s son-in-law and also FEB UNS lecturer, also welcomed the leaders of UNS. Although he is not in good health, cheerfulness cannot be wiped from Prof. Syamsulhadi. Occasionally he wiped tears happily while stammering because he did not expect the leaders of the UNS to visit his residence. Moreover, not only the Rector and Vice-Rector who came to visit his house but also other official too. Prof. Jamal hopes that this fellowship can be a remedy for Prof. Syamsulhadi to quickly recovered.
After a short visit to Prof. Syamsulhadi and his family, the group continued their journey to the residence of Prof. Ravik Karsidi. The group arrived at the residence of Prof. Ravik at exactly 12: 00 WIB. They were greeted in person by Prof. Ravik and Mrs. Handayani Ravik Karsidi, alongside their sons and daughters. “I am very pleased to welcome the visitation from the UNS leaders. I am also proud of the progressing development of UNS, both nationally and internationally,” said Prof. Ravik. Humas UNS
