Back to school ceremony: a unique experience for our students and staff

September 16, 2021 - January 16, 2022
The back to school ceremony for Grenoble INP - UGA's 8 schools, including Grenoble IAE, took place on Thursday, September 16 at the Stade des Alpes.

8 teams, 3000 supporters

In an atmosphere that would put most stadiums to shame, no less than 3000 students attended the Grenoble INP - UGA ceremony at the Stade des Alpes. Grenoble IAE students (both L3 and M1) were wearing the colors of our school and recognized the new ties between Grenoble IAE and the INP. 

The IAE students were not alone. Newcomers from Ense3, Ensimag, Esisar Valence, Génie Industriel, Pagora, Phelma and Polytech were also present. In a lively atmosphere the student organizations ramped up the energy while waiting for the speech by Pierre Benech, General Administrator of Grenoble INP.

A near-normal start to the academic year

Pierre Benech welcomed the new students, praising the fact that they were returning to 100% face-to-face teaching while respecting the current health measures in place.

Isabelle Guillaume (President of the Board of Directors) and Jacques Goudet (President of Grenoble INP Alumni) each spoke about the rich student life in Grenoble INP's various schools.

The event was organized by the Grand Cercle, the student organization to beat all student organizations. They wrapped up the ceremony with the screening of a film presenting the year to come. This was followed by the traditional "dance" by each BDE president, and the presentation of a check to the "Issue de secours - Rialto SOS femmes 38" charity for 6409.75 euros.
