Beginning fall 2017, Tiffin University’s esports team will flip the switch and officially kick off a competitive first season in the Collegiate Star League (CSL). The world of digital athletics as video game competitions, also known as esports, have taken off on college campuses across the country. TU is proud to be a leader in this pioneering field, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and math.
Like a track team, TU’s esports team can compete in several events, with any game. TU players are trained by world-ranked coaches in the brand new, state-of-the-art esports facility, which is currently the largest in the United States. The complex houses a training room as well as a gaming lounge for all TU students to enjoy.
“Parents may have thought that all those hours their kids spent playing video games was wasted, but they may have been training to be the next generation of athletes,” esports advisor, Steven Borawski said. “Just like the all-star football or baseball player, Tiffin University recognizes that today’s college bound students are changing and this one-of-a-kind program will combine esports with TU’s high quality academic programs offering numerous scholarship opportunities. Tiffin’s digital athletes will be held to the same high academic standards as all student athletes.”
