Being a student at ESB on the Chantrerie campus in Nantes

Student associations

ESB students are particularly active and are encouraged to get involved in many projects. They have banded together in various associations. Everyone will find a way to explore their centres of interest.

The Student Office (BDE) is responsible for organising extracurricular activities.

It puts on various events, including inter-school challenges, parties, orientation weekends, and barbecues. The BDE manages the cafeteria where students can relax or have lunch.

Remise des trophées de la Nuit du bois à l'ESB

La Nuit du bois

Every year, twenty students join the La Nuit du Bois association to organise ESB’s annual gala dinner, a highly anticipated event known for its fashion show of dresses and costumes made of wood.

The success of this event requires careful organisation for the presentations, staging, patrons, logistics, and more. It’s a great demonstration of the students’ skills in carrying out a large project from start to finish.
