It is kinda scary to go somewhere new completely alone, so the ability to connect with other people makes it easier in my opinion!
It’s great to be able to meet people of my class before the courses even begin. I was very stressed these last months, but Goin’ helped a lot. Thanks for this awesome idea! Cheers, Lisa
Goin’ is an amazing idea, it’s great to meet new people before arriving to NL. I like it a lot!
It’s just a comfortable feeling that you already know people before you have the introduction day.
I was just curious to see who would be my future classmates. But I also loved Goin’ for the groups and events, they were an easy way to find like-minded students.
As for me, when I heard about Goin’, it first gave me the feeling I’m coming in an University where everything seems well organized. And it’s so cool to talk with people I will be able to meet there, it’s seems easier for integration. I found it so cool and very practical 🙂
If I knew that I would be in a classroom with two other people from Hamburg, my whole arrival would have been way easier.
The app gives me a better feeling because I can connect with people before the exchange starts. So I don’t feel lost when coming to NL.
I really like the app, and the idea of it. I believe in these times, it’s more important than ever, to have the chance to meet our fellow student, and get to know them, since this is no longer an option between classes and breaks. The app can surely help with getting to know people, and I already found some who I will meet by the time I will be in Utrecht.
Goin’ is great! Especially now, when most courses at university are online anyway, you have to find other ways to connect with people. And you already feel more comfortable because you already know some colleagues before even arriving 🙂
Goin’ gives me the feeling that we won’t be all alone in Utrecht and that is especially important these times 🙂
Via Goin’ I met other German students who also went to Utrecht. We even found an appartment together!
I think the whole idea is amazing. I have connected with people from both the country I’m living and also people of my same degree program. It is nice to have some sort of connection so that when we get there we don’t feel like we are completely alone. This platform should absolutely also be used by my home university!
I believe that this initiative is a very nice and helpful idea! Due to the current situation with Covid I have decided to choose a study program which is offered 100% online. So it is very nice and helpful that I have still been able to get to know some people, who are also going to study the same program 100% online!
I am really happy about Goin’. I really like the concept of this app and have already met other people from the same course, which I think that helps a lot with preparing for the exchange, and also to provide more possibilities to meet other people and make more fun about it 🙂
Thanks so much for this initiative, a very great idea. It helped me a lot to find and chat with other exchange students. Actually, I have already spoken with some, and we planned to meet in person in NL. So the app is working well!
Goin’ is great! I can connect with other students by using it, and I am so glad that I found a student who is going to study the same program with me. I am looking forward to the adventure with her in Utrecht 🙂
I think this app is very useful to connect with other students and get to meet them before even landing to Netherlands!
Goin’ helped me so much to integrate! Via Goin’, I made new friends and found my future roommates before my arrival, can’t wait to meet new people here!
I installed this App yesterday and before I was really worried if I‘ll even be able to make many friends due to Covid-Measures. But registering here I realized, everyone feels the same way and is really trying to connect, thus it made me feel a lot better. Therefore I find the App really awesome, it helped me to feel more secure about my decision to go abroad 🙂 so thank you!
Goin’ is a great initiative that facilitates the way to meet people. The introduction week is online this year and the app allowed us to find and meet others also going to this university instead of only our classmates.
