Bethany College Esports Club

Where Victory is Virtual, but the Passion is Real!

At Bethany College, you have the chance to pursue your passions inside and outside of the classroom. By joining our esports club, you will have the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level and develop skills that are essential for success, both on and off the virtual battlefield.

As a member of the ECAC Esports League, Bethany College competes against other colleges in several popular games for 2-3 months per semester. Not only does this provide an outlet for competitive gamers, but it also aids in developing skills such as problem-solving, multitasking, communication, coordination, strategic planning, and decision-making. It also offers an avenue for socialization with other players and even networking opportunities among the top collegiate teams.
