Students look very happy when guest stars appear among them. On that night, students through the Zoom meeting, listened to the chanting of ‘Dengarkan Dia’ band. The music group performance session was interspersed with several questions and answers between guest stars and students.

Several questions arose. For example, questions about how to become a musician, albums, interesting tips to become a student and run it. In this session, new students were very happy because they could have the opportunity to ask their idols. Before performing the next song, the musicians Ayudiac and Ditto gave some input to the new students. “During the course of the lecture, always try to be active because there are many benefits in the future,” they said.
