ESports is a great opportunity for the students to take their passion in gaming and compete against regional and national Universities. Leading the charge is Dr. Nathan Green, the team's coach as well as an Assistant Professor for IT, Data Science, and Cybersecurity.
ESports is a growing industry that brought in just shy of $1 billion in 2018 and a growing audience, with annual online viewership of around 380 million views. ESports has become much more than your average gaming LAN party. Twitch has become a major global content provider with its primary business in game streaming. While traditional media has seen a downturn for new generations, online viewership of gaming has grown. One channel for League of Legends has had over 12 million viewer hours.
For those interested in participating in the eSports team, please contact Dr. Green (firstname.lastname@example.org). Marymount is looking for a diverse set of players with wide-ranging skills across games.
