The ASINT (INT Sports Club) campaign lasts 2 months during which 2 groups of 30 students compete by participating in the organisation of an evening at the skating rink, the skiing weekend, the Youyou party (the Club’s mascot) and 2 evening events in the school foyer.

All the teams in competition, whether they win or lose, create connections that go far beyond academic life.

The BDA (Arts Society) organises an internal election campaign where each member of the bureau is elected following a vote.
