What is eSports?

eSports is console or PC gaming on a competitive level. eSports is one of the most viewed competitions in the world - with professional matches attracting more viewers than every other sport except football! eSports is a rising field with many different career paths.

Why eSports?

eSports aren't just fun - it also allows students of all ages and levels to compete and gain skills working collaboratively on a team. Additionally, students can explore careers in eSports and related fields. Each year, more and more four year universities are offering scholarships for students to compete at the collegiate level in eSports.
