Diponegoro University again graduated its best students at the 7th stage of the 167th Graduation at the Prof. Building. Soedarto SH, Undip Tembalang campus, Friday (29/07). A graduate of S1 Agroecotechnology, Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture (FPP), Lifta Nuraini shared her interesting experience when she first got to know Undip until she became the best graduate / cum laude today.

“Studying at Undip gave me a lot of experience and learning. Living far from home is certainly a challenge to adapt, but the comfortable campus atmosphere makes it easy. I was able to get to know friends with different cultural backgrounds, learn to socialize with the community better and learn new things in the world of agriculture that I certainly haven’t had before. Agriculture is a very crucial field for the nation, but there are still many people who are not interested in this field, because it is synonymous with hoeing and working in the fields. Being an agricultural student, it is a challenge for me to change the stigma of people who still look down on agriculture.” he said.

A great interest in agriculture since high school, made him persistent in studying at university even though he came from a remote village in the South Lampung area. The student with a 3.99 GPA also expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to get the Bidikmisi scholarship, so that he could continue his education at one of the best universities in the country. In addition, he also added his good impression of being a student of the Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture (FPP).

“Undip’s agro-ecotechnology introduced me further to the importance of agriculture for life, the prospects of agriculture in the future so that it made me believe that entering the agricultural sector was the right path that God gave me to continue the process going forward.” he said.
