Hari ini saya berbagi pengalaman dengan mahasiswa baru Universitas Indonesia angkatan tahun 2017. Saya lulus SMA tahun 1981 dari Semarang dan masuk Jakarta lalu mengikuti orientasi selama tujuh hari di kampus UI. Dengan belajar yang keras, saya mendapatkan IP yang tertinggi waktu lulus dari FEUI. Namun selama di kampus saya tidak hanya belajar saja, saya juga ikut aktif berbagai kegiatan di kampus, termasuk di senat dan teater. Jadi saya menggunakan waktu untuk berteman, bermain, bermusik dan belajar dengan waktu yang seimbang. Tantangan generasi sekarang dengan jaman saya berbeda, jaman saya kuliah dulu, tidak ada internet, ponsel dan lain-lain. Mahasiswa sekarang mempunyai banyak sekali pilihan untuk mengakses informasi dan pengetahuan. Bahkan sekarang mahasiswa juga dapat dengan mudah mendapatkan beasiswa dari Lembaga Pengelola Dana Pendidikan (LPDP). Saat ini peraih beasiswa LPDP dari UI ada 1500 mahasiswa. Jaman saya dulu, saya harus bekerja tambahan siang malam untuk dapat menyelesaikan PhD saya di luar negeri karena beasiswa hanya cukup untuk 18 bulan, padahal kuliah S2 dan S3 harus diselesaikan dalam 4 tahun. Saya sudah biasa membaca buku sejak kecil, termasuk juga menikmati membaca text book saat kuliah. Kebiasaan ini terbawa sampai sekarang. Walaupun tidak langsung selesai membaca satu buku dalam satu kali baca, selepas bekerja, saya sempatkan membaca buku novel dan otobiografi dan mendapatkan inspirasi dari kisah-kisah tersebut. Kebiasaan lain semasa kuliah yang masih saya lakukan sampai sekarang adalah menulis, terutama menulis tentang persepsi, mengenai perasaan, mengenai masalah keadilan dan lain-lain. Intinya, semua ide dan pikiran yang positif harus disalurkan dalam berbagai saluran. Jakarta, 12 Agustus 2017
