Menlo College Launches Esports Program Becoming First California School In NACE
ATHERTON, Calif. – Menlo College Athletics is pleased to announce the addition of an esports program for the 2018-19 academic year. Menlo Esports will offer several game teams including: League of Legends, Overwatch, CS:GO, PUBG, Hearthstone, and Rocket League. Unlike other programs, Menlo Esports does not have a social club attachment, and is supported by the athletics department. As part of the athletics department, athletic scholarships are available to qualifying student athletes. Menlo will also be building and outfitting a new room with cutting edge computers and peripherals. Partnering with the NACE, Menlo hopes to work with other collegiate organizations to support growth and breed competition.
Menlo College Esports will be rolled out for the 2018-19 academic year as one of three new club sport offerings and one of five total club sports offerings at the college. Athletic scholarship will be available for new students who meet minimum eligibility standards. Menlo College is currently the only four-year institution in Northern California to offer Athletic Scholarship for its Esports program. If you’re interested in joining the newest program on campus, reach out to head coach Alex Holler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
