“I want Unimus to become a Garden Campus, so that the students will feel comfortable that makes every academic and non-academic activity and learning runs smoothly,” Prof. Masrukhi said. Moreover, he advised the students to make use of At-Taqwa Muhammadiyah Mosque as the center of worship, education, and Islamic trainings. At-Taqwa Mosque itself is the campus mosque of Unimus located in the integrated campus of Unimus at Jl. Kedungmundu Raya 18, Semarang, designed as the center of Islamic activities, scientific studies, and any other religious affairs for the academicians of Universitas Muhammadiyah Semarang. Prof. Masrukhi added that by upholding Islam, it was one of the ways to get closed to Allah SWT. “O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet. (Surah Muhammad [47:7]). It may be that one of Allah’s helps to you (students) is to make you get easier to work with thesis, get job, and pursue career in the institution in the future,” Prof. Masrukhi added.
