The event was attended by Dean of FEB UNAIR, Prof. Dr. Dian Agustia, SE., M.Si., Ak., along with Head of Student Parent Association (IKOMA), Dr. Sugiyat; and invited guests from Ashabul Kahfi Orphanage in Surabaya.
The event began with a joint prayer led by H. Muhtar as Head of Surabaya Ashabul Kahfi Orphanage Foundation then followed by a speech from Head of IKOMA and Dean of FEB UNAIR.
In his remarks, Dr. Sugiyat, Head of IKOMA FEB UNAIR expressed his gratitude to the parties involved in the construction of Guest House I.
“We are grateful for the cooperation and guidance. IKOMA have been established for several years. Hopefully, it can support students and lecturers activities.” said Sugiyat.
After the remarks, the event continued with the inauguration of Guest House I with cutting tumpeng procession conducted by Head of IKOMA FEB UNAIR. The name of Guest House I itself stands for Guest House IKOMA. Namely as a form of appreciation from FEB UNAIR to IKOMA who have supported FEB UNAIR’s activities and programs.
The building located on Jalan Sutorejo Utara X No. 7 Surabaya is a grant from the remaining donations from parents who are members of IKOMA FEB UNAIR. Seeing the remaining funds were quite large, Prof. Dian then proposed that the funds can be used for something useful for FEB UNAIR going forward, namely establishing a guest house.
Because FEB has many activities and cooperation with outside parties. Thus, FEB wants to provide the best and comfortable accommodation for guests. Furthermore, the plan to establish Guest House FEB was approved and realized.
“So we made this guest house to support the collaboration activities between FEB and others because we have many guest lecturers, “explained Prof. Dian.
Modern-style homes with shades of white and pastel colors have four bedrooms with three different categories. Namely, one VIP room, one family-sized room, and two standard-sized rooms. VIP rooms are located on the first floor, while the other three rooms are on the second floor.
With an area of about two hundred and forty square meters, Guest House I also equipped with a living room, kitchen, outdoor bathroom and private bathroom, television in each room, and a central room that can be used as a meeting room.
Furthermore, continued Prof. Dian, Guest House I also provides shuttle transportation services for guests to stay overnight.
“Hopefully it will be useful and a supporting tool for the success of activities. For example, for inbound students who visit the faculty because we are preparing for international standards, “he said.
Guest House I is not only for guests or activities related to FEB UNAIR, but also open to all UNAIR academics who need lodging accommodation for campus interests or activities. (*)
