Social and Sports Activities

There is a great deal to keep you entertained while you're at Les Roches. You can wind down at the Café du Village playing electronic games, table tennis and Fussball.

You could go out for a drink or a meal at Le Petit Paradis nearby, and there is a wide range of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops just 10 minutes away in Crans-Montana.

Your student social committee will be in charge of organizing social and cultural activities. These take place on and off campus, and can include everything from dinner parties to quiz nights, and organized trips to cities such as Milan and Lausanne. They find all sorts of ways to have fun, and in 2012 our students set the world record for the most nationalities in a swimming pool. In 2013, they held a Master Chef competition and Les Roches’ Got Talent.

A highlight each semester is Cultural Night. Twice a year, you will have the opportunity to celebrate your country – in song, dance, comedy, Martial arts – however you want. After the shows, there’s a chance to taste food from all the countries represented.

Social events on campus

The SSC organizes events such as theme dinner parties, quiz nights and disco evenings, which take place in the Café du Village (also called CDV). 

There are many different activities and committees – and always the possibility to start new ones.

One of the highlights of each semester is ‘Cultural Night’, which consists of an evening of entertainment and culinary specialties.

Students from all countries are invited to participate in the show and depict aspects of their own culture through music, costume, dance, photos and slideshows. After the show, the feast! Students representing their countries prepare a variety of exotic dishes.

Maintain a balanced lifestyle

The full-time sports coach helps students maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle during their time on campus. Depending upon the season, students can participate in sports on campus such as volleyball, basketball, football or swimming.

The campus also has a fully-equipped, modern gym and fitness center. Additionally, the sports coach organizes trainings and competitions for team sports with other universities.

Crans-Montana offers the possibility for diverse winter sports such as curling, dog-sledding, ice-skating, cross-country and down-hill skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, toboggan and snow-tubing.

If you are tempted to try a new sport, lessons and equipment rental can be easily arranged. 

Student Outings

Visits to local places of interest are organized throughout the year. From cheese and chocolate factories to vineyards, fine-dining establishments, and arts or wine festivals, the list is pretty much endless.

A favorite student haunt is the local ‘Le Petit Paradis’, though Crans-Montana also abounds with restaurants, clubs and shops.

Les Roches students benefit from the school's partnerships with local businesses and alumni, and enjoy discounts and special deals at restaurants, shops, hotels and boutiques, as well as reduced rates for ski-passes and car rentals.
