New Students Welcoming Day

To help new students discover Orléans and meet each other, while following health regulations, the Orléans Metropolis organises every year a New Students Welcoming Day (“Journée d’Accueil des Nouveaux Etudiants” – JANE).

It is the opportunity to discover the city, its heritage and its various cultural and historical sites through fun activities with the local student associations.

Animations are offered at the Orléans skating rink where students can enjoy a free buffet. Finally, each student will be offered a tote bag including goodies, free tickets for museums and shows, and some practical information.
