A law student in Indonesia decided to hold his own graduation ceremony on top of the active volcano Mount Marapi, as coronavirus restrictions had cancelled the normal graduation. Muhammad Nasir, a student at Andalas University (UNAND) Padang, West Sumatra, travelled with several companions to the foot of the mountain by motorbike on June 29. The group then began climbing the slopes by night and arrived at the peak before dawn the next day (June 30).When he reached the top, Nasir immediately searched for an internet connection and connected to a Zoom meeting with Andalas University, using a laptop and cellphone.Nasir also said that the decision taken by the university to hold online-only graduations was the right thing to do.
