After a scandalous INSA integration, the SCAN people invaded the small city of Giron, in a very intimate atmosphere from the 17 of September to the 18 of September.
At our arrival, students took possession of their room in the cottage that would host two generations of SCAN students for the next two days.
In spite of the rain and the biting cold, the afternoon was dedicated to outside games. Much to our surprise, these games involved dodge-ball with a salmon fish head, the “try not to laugh” contest with a mouth full of water, digging candy in flour and steal the bacon with a dead squid. The organizers (so called “Orga”) had planned out on the domain the games in a playful atmosphere and had everyone divided in teams of eight.
To finish it off, an integration weekend is nothing unless everyone is socking wet and dirty. In order to rectify this point, the second year student had the pleasure to throw paint and water balloons at the first after all the group photos were taken. The photo says it all, the weekend was fun.
After two hours in the cold and a much needed hot shower, the highlight of the WISC began: cutting each others hair. This year the horrible weather forced the students to do it inside the cottage, enabling the Orga team to spend a few hours sweeping. For those who prefered pimping rather than shaving their hair, the Orga had planned multiple hair dyes, and bleach. The bravest chose to mix colors and haircuts, a perfect recipe.
Obviously, after the dinner we had the party everyone had been waiting for. This year’s theme party was fluorescence. With UV LED bars, fluorescent paint, every clothes which had fluorescence colors were brighter.
We thank Arthur Saunier and K-Le Son (an INSA association), we had all the equipment we needed to party all night long: a powerful sound system and a lot of lights. Finally the party was sick and everybody enjoyed that night.
This year the WISC was spent indoors, the sky was gray and the air was cold, but it didn’t matter. The SCAN people had a great time in this huge cottage, first and second year student meeting each other. It was a great integration weekend even though the environment was not with us.
