Unless you’ve been stuck on an asteroid, you’ll know that esports are huge. According to Wired magazine, more people watched a recent League of Legends World Championship than the NCAA Final Four and the Super Bowl combined. Gamer and computer science Professor Jeremy Hansen helped establish the NU esports team in 2018. Since then, it has taken off like, well, a rocket. It now boasts more than 60 players who compete in six games at the varsity, junior varsity, and club level—making it one of largest teams on campus. Incoming Norwich players can even earn scholarships. Generation Z welcomes you to the future of sport.
