The purpose of the USC Sumter eSports program is to promote the education and development of students through intercollegiate eSports participation. The program’s goal is to provide a competitive environment for students to participate in a variety of games across the intercollegiate landscape. While providing competitive goals and aspirations, “the student” is the center of the program. The development of eSports skills is paramount, but the development of the diverse student is the most important aspect of the program. This diversity shows among many aspects of the student’s growth, such as: teamwork, camaraderie, sportsmanship, time management, responsibilities in regard to social presence and educational standards, and developing skills to compete in a competitive environment (locally, nationally and globally).
As the only institutional association for varsity esports we are building the foundation for high level competition in collegiate esports while creating new opportunities for students to gain a college education. We also provide guidance to institutions wishing to start varsity programming on their campuses.
