Well, even if we missed most of them #ThanksCorona, you should be luckier. And you did well to choose INSA Lyon because we’re far from lacking events. Here, we present you the biggest ones but remember that at INSA, there are always things to do.
(Apart from the inté, it’s last year’s aftermovies, as everything was cancelled, but this year we plan to attend all of them!)
Do I really need to explain myself here ?
It’s all the activities that your loving CDPs have prepared for you, so go read about your arrival on the Black Pearl to find out more.
The 24h of INSA
It’s one of the biggest student festivals in France, it’s 48 hours (yes we know how to count at INSA don’t worry #DifferentEngineer) of sports, artistic activities, concerts and parties. It’s incredible so you’ll have to be quick to get your tickets because they go as fast as rum bottles in the cellar of a boat.
The Bal (French Prom)
We’re playing it a bit American style on this point, so you’ll have to get out your best dress and your best suit and accompanied by your date you can enjoy an evening of madness dancing to the rhythms of the most beautiful music of the Caribbean and the seven seas.
The Gala is the last night for new graduates after five years at INSA (hello SHN who take ten years instead of five) But because we know that like any good freshman you love to cultivate the good spirit and the humanistic spirit (#DifferentEngineer), we don’t doubt for a moment that you’ll volunteer to organize the Gala. As an orga, you’ll be able to add your stone to this great edifice, and give a little of your time to treat the older ones. Get motivated, newbie, it’s really a great experience to live, and after all it’s just an exchange of good practices with the future 1A’s who will know how to treat you when it’s your turn… at least we hope so!
The Humanitarian Karnaval
The Karna ? Have you always dreamed of visiting the market in Port-Royal or Tortuga? You will be able to spend a whole week on your campus, which offers you concerts, workshops and lectures in a joyful and good spirit, believe me a good plan to change your mind a little between two periods of studying. Tents, platforms, these people know how to make themselves noticed, and will offer you a pleasant distraction with the return of the first beautiful days (Believe me, you’re waiting for them in the middle of March in Lyon). Finally, all the profits will be used to finance projects or support humanitarian actions.
The High Five
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to gather all the pirates of France in one event, it’s the main goal of the High Five. It brings together the 6 INSA (again, we know how to count, don’t worry) through numerous sports competitions and cultural and scientific meetings. You will be able to represent the Caribbean at best and put your title of greatest pirates at stake.
Here we’re talking to the strongest pirates, the great fighters, the most resistant. Accompanied by a crew of 3 pirates, you will be able to try an unique adventure of 3 days with some very extraordinary challenges : running, cycling, kayaking, climbing… A piece of advice if you want to try the Raid, you will have to do more than just empty the rum reserves and get to work as of September.
