Trick or treat?🕸️🎃 Our CEMSies gathered for a Halloween costume party before the exam revision period. From Red evils and pirates to very creative concepts, originality and ingenuity weren't lacking! 🤪 Through diverse activities, games, and drinks we shared a great moment together. We would like to thank everyone present as well as the Social team who contributed to the success of this evening! 🥰
Sports are well-known to relieve stress and anxiety. So, as mid-term exams and project deadlines are coming up very fast, our CEMSies spent an evening playing bowling.🎳 We all had a great time in this childish and sometimes competitive atmosphere.🤪 Randomly chosen teams were also the best opportunity to get to know CEMSies one would not have met yet.
Blood donation & clean walk
Our CSR team's first event took place and allowed our CEMSies to participate in a positive action!
Students had the opportunity to help to save lives by donating blood or plasma 🩸 The students overcame their initial apprehension and everything went very well! For those who could not donate, a clean walk was organized to make Louvain-La-Neuve clean again ♻ The students took part in the game and were divided into teams to collect as much waste as possible in a joyful atmosphere 😁
First social event
A new academic year has just started and the social team decided to surprise the new M1 and incoming CEMSies with a party in a local bar of Louvain-la-Neuve 🍻 Our CEMSies had the opportunity to get to know each other better over a few drinks in a nice festive atmosphere 💃🕺 There is no better way to start this new adventure !
Our M2 and incoming CEMSies discovered Louvain-la-Neuve and it's night life this week! It was the perfect way to meet new people and have fun before classes started!
Our CEMSies farewelled an incredible semester with an Early Christmas Dinner 🎄
It was the perfect way to wish our exchange students and M2 departing a good journey and share some Christmas spirit before the holidays 🎉
Ugly sweaters, delicious Belgian fries and an unexpected birthday were there to create the best possible event of the year. Thank you all for your participation and engagement during the Semester. It has been a pleasure sharing these moments with all of you ❤️
La Bourse: Make it Easy
Last Thursday, CEMSies followed a finance training to better understand the functioning of the stock exchange and the main investment principles. 📈They asked themselves the good questions, decode investment funds and decide the one that suits them the most. This corporate event was presented by Grégory Guilmin, whose dream is to help 1 million people start in the stock market and be autonomous with their assets. 💸If you are interested in following this seminar, check out @laboursemakeiteasy ! Thank you Mr. Guilmin again for this event, we hope you will reach your dream!💭
This event organized by the CSR department had the goal to promote sport and cleanliness of the city of Louvain-La-Neuve. CEMSies were in group of 4 poeple and had as a common goal to combine running & cleaning as much as possible during one hour. It was basically a cleaning run where they had to maximize the number of kilometers run times the number of kilogram of crash they would pick from the street.
It was a pretty busy week for our CEMSies as @cems_alliance gave us sustainable challenges every day like eating vegan, signing a petition, having reusable items (such as our wonderful water bottle!), etc. Everyone involved itself and it was crazy !🌱
We organised a charity event Saturday with @croixrougebe to clean surroundings, install frescoes, supervise food distribution to help migrants. Such a beautiful moment of exchange!
"How to convince in a digital world?" by Igor (Alumnus)
We got the opportunity to meet one young alumni: @igtkint . Who shared with us the adequate manner to convince in a digital world, and some tips and tricks to conduct a powerful interview!💥 After an active presentation where we were kindly involved, we had a drink together where we could ask questions to the speaker! It was also the opportunity to have some feedbacks about CVs! 😉
After a though week of exams, CCB organized a chill WE in Antwerp 🥰 It was the perfect opportunity for everyone to gather, spend time together while drinking beers, visiting the city, going to the restaurant and of course partying!! 🥳 This 2-day teambuilding came right on time as we started fully CEMS classes just after!
As we celebrated our Halloween Party, blood covered the floors of the Cems House and the end of our 2 week "killer game"… ☠️☠️☠️ @alicecarbonnelle was crowned the most dangerous CEMSie of the cohort while our dear masters students put the effort to find the most creative costume 👻

"How to fight food waste?" by Michele (Alumnus)
We had the chance to meet Michele Zingaretti, a former CEMS Club Belgium president. Michele introduced us to the company he works for: Phenix, a scale-up fighting against food waste! ♻️
During this insightful online conference, he and his colleague Amaury explained to us how Phenix supports:
🏴 Vulnerable communities by giving away unsold products to charities
🏦 Businesses by coaching them on how to better manage their unsold stock
🛒 Consumers by helping them save on their everyday purchases through their app
We also talked about the B-Corp label Phenix owns and about what it actually entails 🌱
In order to create even stronger bonds between the CEMS Club Belgium members, there is nothing like a paintball game combining strategy, physics and audacity! 👊🏼 After this paintball game, the CCB members met in the famous BeBurger restaurant in Brussels and had a party together! 🎉
CEMSies gathered together for a bowling night in the center of Louvain-la-Neuve. The competition was intense during 2 fiery games full of fun of course🔥🎳
