When: Nov/Dec 2017


"Ainsi périssent les ennemis de la République!"

The Ecolint Alumni Escalade Dinners are, for many alumni, a treasured opportunity to re-connect with the school that played such an important part in their lives. In 2015, a record 20 events took place around the world.

These dinners are organized by volunteers and are generally held as close as possible to 11-12 December. The Alumni Office arranges for chocolate marmites to be shipped to each dinner so that the tradition of having the youngest and oldest person break open the marmite can be maintained.

Depending on the number of people involved and the size of the local alumni community, dinners are either held at a restaurant or other event venue (perhaps with a Swiss connection) or hosted by alumni in their own home.

If your would like to organise a dinner, please contact the Alumni Office as soon as possible. (
Coordination help is still needed for Southern California, the Netherlands, Paris, and Singapore.
