"Worried if I remain in Solo because right now the coronavirus is in an uproar, other than that I take advantage of the moment of the online lecture system to gather with my family" Naufal Zayyan Fadlurahman, Public Health Student (2019)

"At first I wanted to stay in solo because there was an appeal "do not go home because we do not know whether we were exposed to the Coronavirus on the way home or not or we could not be exposed but we are carriers, which can actually endanger families in my hometown " and parents agree with that, but after talking a lot with my father finally I have to go home. He is worried that I will have no friends in solo because most of my friends go home. " Aftikha Nayla, Pharmacy Student (2018).
