Student life

All students can get involved in the associative life of the Icam.

In addition to bringing students together around a common passion, associations are also a vehicle for personal and professional development. Indeed, organization, communication and teamwork are qualities developed at the heart of associations.

Among the associations at the Nantes site, here are some of them:

  • BDE: Student Office. He manages associations and animates student life at Icam by organizing sporting, cultural and festive events. He is also there to bring new ideas, new projects to improve life within the ICAM.
  • BDS: The BDS represents the sports associations of the school and takes care of FNSU activities. Each week slots are offered for the following sports: 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, masses. There are 2 per week: spiritual time on Thursday evening from 7:30 p.m., 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, on the model of a consulting firm. It allows students to put their theoretical teachings into practice by carrying out projects for professionals.
