Now Recruiting for Varsity Teams

The varsity team competes in the newly constructed esports facility within McHie Arena.

Olivet Nazarene University is proudly competing in intercollegiate esports competitions in several game titles. Students interested in Varsity Esports begin by joining Training Grounds, the central point of gaming activities sponsored by the Director of Esports. The Training Grounds community covers a wide variety of gaming and digital media topics and includes participants interested in casual, competitive and academic opportunities.

Varsity Esports is the main place for intercollegiate competition in select esport titles. As competitive students join Training Grounds, the Director looks for an interest in forming Varsity Esports teams to represent Olivet in competitions. 

The varsity team is under the direction of Mike Szostek. Members of Olivet’s varsity team are required to go through academic verification in addition to practicing to improve their in-game rank.
