ESN Welcome Week

You are coming to Lausanne next semester but you do not know anyone or anything about Lausanne? You feel excited yet scared of finding yourself alone in a big campus like EPFL or UNIL? Do not worry anymore! ESN EPFL and ESN UNIL got your back! 

Every start of semester we organise one week before the start of classes that is full of events, just for you! During this week, you’ll be able to meet your fellow exchange buddies, visit Lausanne and the campus and party with us. 
So what exactly is the Welcome Week? It is 2 events per day with more than 100 students per event just like you for a whole week! It is an incredible weekend at a chalet in the mountains where you will get be in harmony with Swiss nature. Finally, and more importantly, it is a week full of fun, adventures and new encounters. We have specifically designed this week to integrate you with the locals and meet some amazing people before the start of your classes.
