Societies Forum – ready to take up the challenge?
On Thursday 19 September, SCBS students discovered the 16 societies at the school. A little ‘recap’ to refresh our memories;
- Student Office (Bureau des Etudiants – BDE)
A society that represents and unites all the SCBS students! It welcomes all the students, makes sure they settle in well and organises student life at the school!
Key projects: Galas, Induction weekend, Shows, entertainment all year round
- Sports Office (Bureau des Sports – BDS)
A society that promotes sport to students, offering around 15 sports activities as well as managing the school’s sports hall.
Sports: football, basketball, badminton, boxing, handball, hip hop, rugby, tennis, table tennis, salsa, swimming, etc. Plus inter-university championships!
- Arts Office (Bureau des Arts – BDA – Art’Hood)
This society brings together all the school’s arty students: singers, musicians and hypnotists! It is the focal point for all the school’s cultural events!
Its key moment: organising a totally hallucinating hypnotism show!
- ESN TROYES
A society whose mission is to welcome all international students at SCBS! Member of the ESN network, ensuring students settle in well. We organise a number of events to make sure all these students have great memories of France.
- Oh My Game
Even geeks have a right to their own society! Students who love video games can join Oh My Game and create a real community of gamers.
In the first semester of 2019, Oh My Game organised a giant LAN party at the school!
- Dresc’in Troyes
We love fashion! We love style! And we love to show it!
Dresc’in Troyes organises fashion swap shops on campus.
- Get Shop
We love SCBS so much that we make and sell merchandised products. Get Shop is the school’s shop!
- Get Coffee (known as K’Fet)
The cafeteria is the beating heart of SCBS!
Students manage the school’s KFET every day, offering essential snacks so you never go hungry.
- Champ and Wine
As SCBS is based in a region with a strong wine heritage, this society specialises in wine tasting and visiting prestigious wine cellars! Please drink responsibly.
- He For She
A society that aims to promote gender equality in the university and professional worlds! Its missions are part of the He For She movement launched by the UN.
Elected best Troyes society in 2018. It organises the Gender Equality Week at the school!
- Troyes de Cœur
Here, we work for others! Our mission is to organise actions at SCBS to raise funds for charities such as Restos du Cœur, Téléthon, Secours Populaire, and so on. Troyes de Cœur also visits sick children at the Simone Veil Hospital in Troyes to brighten up their day!
- Les Cordées
When you join Les Cordées, you become a mentor to several high school students, to help them with their career plans and support them in their studies. To create links with them, Les Cordées organises many outings and projects, such as creating a show!
- Get Green
In light of the climate emergency faced by our planet, Get Green aims to raise environmental awareness among students through activities, conferences and much more.
- 4L Trophy
A society that helps students form a team to take part in the 4L Trophy rally in the Moroccan desert!
- Get Junior, the SCBS Junior Enterprise scheme
Junior Enterprise works alongside local entrepreneurs. Its mission is to support all enterprises by helping them with a number of tasks: surveys, questionnaires, audits, etc. Get Junior is a real small business of its own. The members of Junior are paid for their work!
What can joining a society bring you?
You will make friends. You will satisfy your curiosity. And more seriously, you will be involved in wonderful projects from A to Z (organisation of the Induction Weekend aka WEI), the end of year gala, skiing weekend with the Sports Office, etc.) which will give you added value and skills when looking for a work placement and/or job!
So which societies will this year’s students get involved in?
