The School year features regular meetings and annual events, many of which are run by associations.
January : Nuit aNormale
The annual ENS Paris-Saclay Gala draws 2,500 students from all over the Ile-de-France region to enjoy top artists ready to shake up student life. Sound, swag, bands and plenty of surprises can be found in ten rooms over three levels, with a range of very different atmospheres on offer at the same time: salsa-rock, oenology, clash, karaoke, LGBT, massage, and more.
March : sENS de l’ART
sENS de l'art is a week-long performing arts festival with an eclectic programme, organized by our students. The festival aims to promote art in all its forms—concerts, theatre, exhibitions, films and shows—to all comers in a friendly atmosphere.
