Things were almost back to normal as this year’s incoming engineering students arrived on the Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA campus.
Most of the 370 students were present in the auditorium on the first day of school, apart from a few international students.
This year’s breakdown is fairly typical: 20% of students came from INP prep or transferred from other undergraduate programs; 80% came from non-INP prep programs. Admissions are up slightly, and the number of female students is also up to a record 30% of the cohort—good news.
The new students, required to show proof of vaccination and wear masks, were able to enjoy many of the usual orientation activities and learn about the student clubs on offer.
Campus life is slowly getting back to normal as everyone continues to adapt to Covid restrictions.
