For Our Swiss Campus

The Student Social Committee will be in charge of organizing social and cultural activities. These take place on and off campus, and include themed days, talent shows, parties & cultural experiences.

In 2012 Les Roches students broke the world record for the most nationalities in a swimming pool. In 2013 they held a Masterchef competition, Les Roches’ Got Talent, and created a giant human map with one of the world’s leading video artists.

A highlight each semester is Cultural Night. Twice a year, you’ll have the opportunity to celebrate your country: in song, dance, comedy, martial arts – or however you wish. After the shows, there’s a chance to taste food from the countries recognized.

The Cine Club shows films in French every week, and you can wind down at the Café du Village playing electronic games, pool and Fussball. You could go out for a drink or a meal at Le Petit Paradis nearby, and there’s a wide range of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops just 10 minutes away in Crans-Montana.

 

CLUBS, SOCIETIES AND COMMITTEES

Here is just a selection of the clubs, societies and committees that students are involved in:
