“What makes us excited about building a social community at Hertie is the potential for change that such a community can create. To fulfil our university motto, “Understand today, shape tomorrow”,  it is essential to build a sense of camaraderie, team works and friendship among students which in order to create impact.”

“I think it is important to connect student before arriving on campus, because this allows students to explore their potential community and make use of resources brought to the table from across the world. It also generates a sense of anticipation and excitement among admits who will potentially meet at university, after they have connected via Goin’. Goin’ allows for connections globally, which helps to kindle the growth of the Hertie Community (or #HertieLove) early on.”

“We decided to choose Goin’ as we believe that it is a unique platform that offers an intuitive, user-friendly networking experience for our admitted students to make friends, create groups, and explore activities once they arrive in Berlin. Building meaningful relations is crucial for our journey here at the Hertie School.”


At Goin’, We couldn’t be more happy to hear such news, and even more  excited to continue our endeavours in creating an uplifting community in Berlin.

Alvaro, from Colombia - “As an international student, it really helped me get in contact with fellow Hertie students and to be completely honest it definitely saved my life a couple of times before arriving! It helped me talk to the others students and ask questions about Hertie, Berlin, Germany, and much more. Moreover, some of my first friends here I found through Goin’!”

Maria, from Ukraine - "I like that you can find people enrolled in the same program with you and immediately find out some things about them in the description. Also I liked that you can find people from the same country as you. I was very relieved that I am not the only student from Ukraine here!"

Shubhankar, from India - “Connecting before moving abroad to college with future cohorts is a great opportunity. Talking with them makes you more comfortable for the coming ride! I have made connections with a lot of people and it’s been very helpful!”

Yeishita, from India - "Personally, it helped me to get started with my whole journey of moving abroad. The first time I connected with a fellow incoming student was on this platform! So I am very glad I found all of my fellow classmates here! Also, the housing groups and social ones are going to  prove to be super helpful!"
