The ESAchallenge club organizes a racing challenge based on sustainable development and sports at the Lac de Maine in Angers. Activities include a raft race made of recyclable materials, a biathlon (running and catamaran), concerts as well as tours of local business and castles. For 2011, ESAchallenge seeks to bring together the nearly 500 FESIA school students from Toulouse, Lyon, Lille and Angers for a weekend in late March to enjoy sports, professional activities and a musical evening.

Each year ESA welcomes 300 students from around the world: Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, China, Algeria, Morocco, India, Spain, Germany, etc. The ESAternational club promotes this cultural diversity, to the delight of "Esaiens" (as students at ESA are called) wishing to broaden their horizons! ESAternational’s mission: to welcome international students and help them get settled in, thanks to parties, student mentors and events such as a Christmas dinner and cultural outings. The club rents bikes to international students and provides practical information.
The Festiv'ESA club organizes a festival held in May each year at ESA. The theme is Sustainable Agriculture. Growers and associations educate residents and students about various alternatives to conventional agriculture. There are also musical groups, entertainment and games for children and adults. Another club project is ESArrosoirs, which educates elementary school children about agriculture and farming. Throughout the year, members make contact with growers, other associations, musicians and entertainers to participate in this festive day. A whole year of planning for one unforgettable day!
The famous ESA Gala is usually held at the Chateau du Plessis Macé, in a unique setting. Come in your finest eveningwear and mingle. There will be a concert by the group Génération, which rocked the dance floor last year, as well as a dance contest. This special evening brings together all ESA students, well as faculty and administration. Everyone dresses up in their best eveningwear and enjoys a dinner, a concert and a late night dance party. It takes a lot of planning to put the event together, but the organizing committee always has fun doing it. Join us and you’ll see!
