Per our club constitution, “the NIU Esports Club believes that video games and esports should be available to all players and endeavors to open the esports field up to collegiate students.” We welcome and teach new members regardless of experience or ability.
We host LAN parties, in-house games and tournaments, and viewing parties. Meetings are held during the school year every other Friday from 6-9 p.m. in the NIU Esports Arena in the Neptune North computer lab. Our club doesn’t meet in summer or when classes are not in session. Join our Facebook group to be alerted of meetings and other club events.
Compete in Club Tournaments
Our teams compete in several games including Hearthstone, League of Legends, Rocket League, Overwatch and Super Smash Brothers. 30-40 students compete on a regular basis. Our competitive teams recruit every semester for new players.
