Gaming at Mount Aloysius College
With Mount Aloysius College’s reputation as a fierce competitor in varsity athletics, it should not come as a surprise that the college has jumped into the new and exciting world of competitive gaming. Mount Aloysius recently launched an exciting new esports program in response to student interest and an evolving national varsity landscape.
The launch included the hiring of a competitive esports coach, Nick Alverson, as well as a fully loaded esports lab.
“I see a lot of ambitious students already on campus here, that already show great interest in the program. I think that we’re going to turn this into a great competitive atmosphere, as well as something all around which the college community can enjoy and get behind.” – Nick Alverson
The newly created esports gaming lounge includes everything from custom branded gaming-specific chairs and desks to the incredible MSI Z390 A-PRO motherboard partnered with large 4K monitors found with every computer. Coach Alverson believes that Mount Aloysius went above and beyond in creating this program and now has the ability to provide a highly competitive, fun experience for new and current student to excel in the world of Collegiate esports.
