Esports 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, as well as a fully loaded esports lab.

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. 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.
