Student Life

Welcome @ EIGSI

Student life : Give rein to your enthusiasm

At EIGSI the slogan is “Live your passions, express your talents!

Indeed, student life is a good time to live your passions, to assert yourself as an individual and as part of a group. It’s a perfect time to join a club, learn a new sport, volunteer your time and be open to others. It’s an opportunity to reveal your many talents.

There are lots of student organizations and clubs at EIGSI, with projects, events and initiatives in all areas, which the Students Activities Office (BDE) has organized into 5 clusters: the Expressive cluster, the Integrating cluster, the Generous cluster, the Sports cluster and the Ingenious cluster.

The student Union offers a large range of activities : 

  •  Sports

Through a partnership with the University of La Rochelle, EIGSI students enjoy access to all the university’s sports facilities. 

  • Culture

Music, theatre

  •  Humanitarian and citizenship issues

Student members of Start-EIGSI set up projects involving young people from deprived areas. The Etudiants pour un Développement Durable put their skills to work on sustainable development projects on behalf of humanitarian NGOs, such as a methane production centre in Tanzania, solar ovens in Haiti or cybercafés in Burkina Faso – all splendid examples of solidarity !
