A group cohesion within the IUT

The concept of Godparent is simple and common, a second year student takes one or more first year students under his/her wing. However, in Digne-les-Bains, in the biological engineering section, we do more than that: there is a real investment in these roles.

To begin with, a whole game of chase is set up by the Godparents so that their Fillot /Fillotte can find them. If they don't find their Godparent before the integration weekend, they will have to pay him/her a fee.

Concerning the integration weekend, it is an event with many outdoor games and a party (often dressed up). It is at this time that bonds are forged between the classes.

The second years in red, the first years in blue form mixed teams and compete in numerous challenges such as belly-slide, dodgeball, tug-of-war etc.

This atmosphere, this cohesion between promos, can only be found in Digne-les-Bains!

Special thanks to the members of the BDE who organize all the activities.
