Originally, it was the Bal des Diplomés that closed the day of the EPFL Magistrale. Organized by the members of the AGEPoly executive committee (general association of EPFL students), it took place in Lausanne hotels, such as the Lausanne Palace or the Beau-Rivage Palace. The participants were 200 for the meal and 300 for the dance.
In order to organize an event worthy of the Magistrale and of the new EPFL alumni, a group of motivated students proposed the creation of a new commission at AGEPoly in 2019. This initiative was accepted by the student community and thus the Nuit de la Magistrale was founded.
Unfortunately the first edition (2020) was not spared by the Coronavirus pandemic: cancellation imposed! But a new committee, more determined than ever, and supported by the previous one, is now working to ensure a first edition worthy of the name and to rekindle the flame lit in 2019!
