Esports FAQ

Varsity esports is a school run and sponsored organization that provides students the opportunity to represent their school in competitive gaming.
We are a school run and operated program that will be composed of multiple titles, not in conjunction with a publisher.
We are looking to establish a permanent home for gamers in our community to represent their University in an official capacity with activities they feel passionate about.
We are currently offering partial scholarships, and we continue to work towards filling in the gap.
The season starts Fall 2017
