What does it consist of?
The Integration Week (also called “SI”) is a week full of discovery and sharing. Throughout the 6 happiest days of your life, we have concocted a program rich in visits, activities (more or less sporting) and festive evenings. The week is entirely organized by students in the upper years of EPFL: they will be able to give you all the necessary information and advice so that you can start the new school year as best as possible. They will also have the role of making your week unforgettable through their good humor and the animation of the activities.
Is it dangerous ?
The safety of the participants is particularly important to us, which is why we work throughout the year in close collaboration with the Safety, Prevention and Health Department of EPFL, as well as the Student Affairs Services for all stress and mental health issues. We are fundamentally opposed to any form of hazing, and ensure that the week goes by in the healthiest possible way, in agreement with the school services concerned.
How is the event organized?
For almost a year before the event, the committee works to finalize all the details of the week: accommodation, travel, visits, activities, etc. The 12 students of the committee are supported during the week by a team of more than 35 staff, and together do everything possible to make the week memorable!
