Student life

All students are welcome to participate in the associative life of Icam.

In addition to bringing students together around a common passion, student associations are also a vehicle for personal and professional development. Teamwork, and organizational and communication skills are some of the qualities developed at the heart of associations.

Below is a list of some of the student associations in Icam Nantes:

  • Student Council or Bureau des Etudiants (BDE): The BDE manages the different student associations. The BDE also animates student life at Icam by organizing sports and cultural events, as well as festivals. The BDE is also a platform for bringing new ideas and projects to improve life within Icam.
  • Bureau des Sports (BDS): The BDS represents the sports associations of the school and takes care of FNSU activities. Slots are offered for the following sports every week: Badminton, Rugby, Futsal, Handball, Foot, Volleyball, Basketball and Tennis.
  • Fol’Icam: This obstacle course takes place in the spring on the Motocross Field of La Chapelle-sur-Erdre. Participants have access to 2 types of races: a “competition” with a time of 4.3 kilometers and a “relaxation” of 1.8 kilometers. A fun and sporty day!
  • BSpi – The Spiritual Office which takes care of pastoral animation and is open to all students and collaborators. The chaplaincy offers moments of sharing, exchanges, and masses. There are 2 regular events per week: spiritual time on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and mass on Friday noon at the Chapel of the Maison des Icam.
  • Impact Icam is the school’s Junior Enterprise. This association operates like a business – a consulting firm. It allows students to put their theoretical teachings into practice by carrying out projects for professionals and industry partners.
  • Humanitarian associations : The student associations of Icam Nantes collaborate with various humanitarian organizations: Antipode (India), Pamoja (Tanzania) and Toimaya (Comoros). By carrying out different activities and events, students are able to raise funds to finance projects such as renovating an orphanage or shipping school supplies to schools.
