Call for Volunteers - the Orientation Week

Hola Hertians,


We hope you are having a nice summer so far! The time to return back to Hertie is fast approaching and one of the most interesting (and anticipated) activities at the start of new academic year is the Orientation week. We hope you all have nice memories from the last year’s O-week and you feel motivated to help the HSA and the Student Affairs team to organize even better sessions this year.


To organize the best O-week ever we would need your help. In particular, we need volunteers for different activities:


  1. Student dinner (on Tuesday, September 6th, 7pm): Like the last year, second year students will host dinner for new Hertians. This is a great opportunity to get to know new students and make new friendships. The number of guests depends only on you, and we will be thankful for all the help we can get from you. If you would like to team up with some of your Hertie mates that is also a possibility.

  2. One of Hertie traditions is the famous Pub crawl (on Thursday, September 8th, 9pm): we all know how important is to get to know some of Berlin’s best bars and as last year, we’ll make groups for different parts of the city. Second years students will be group leaders/pub crawl leaders and of course you can make teams with your Hertie friends. If you want to guide a tour but you are not sure about the best bars, our team members will for sure have some nice suggestions. Moreover, if you have some favorites that shouldn’t be missed, let us know and we’ll make sure to include them! :)


However, all students are more than welcomed to join us for Berlin presentation on Wednesday afternoon! Should you have any ideas for the O-week, please share your thoughts with us, or join the O-week organizing committee!


To get all activities well organized, we have created an online registration form, where you can register for different activities and share your ideas with us! Thank you for your help!


Should you have any question, contact Jovana Panić via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at Hertie soon!

Hertie IT Survey

Dear Hertians,

The HSA team would like to know about your IT experience at Hertie so we can work with school towards improving this area.

In order to make this task easier we are conducting an online survey.

We would appreciate you taking part in this survey, taking into account that we need relevant data to support our argument when talking with the School’s administration.

Hertie love,

Your HSA team
