Indiana Tech University recently announced some of its plans towards Esports, with pros scholarships and varsity programs to compete with other colleges.
The Esports club organically grew from the idea a few students had around 3 or 4 years ago. Fast-forward to today and now 19 students are involved in the club, with a varsity team now accepting applications.Indiana Tech recently became the first school in the state to offer scholarships for eSports. Currently, students focus on League of Legends and Hearthstone, but with the growth of the program and overall interest, that could be changing.
Indiana Tech recently opened what they are calling the “eSports Arena” – a computer lab with custom workstations, hi-tech computers/displays, gaming chairs, smart boards, and more for the teams to strategize and work together.
