Elon University Builds Gaming Room for Students
Last week, Elon University held a grand opening ceremony for a computer gaming room. The Elon Club E-Sports space is inside of Global Commons. The space has 12 gaming PCs, a Nintendo Switch and an Xbox Series X. More than 50 students are currently part of the Elon E-Sports Club. In addition to competing against each other, the club members also face off against club teams at other college campuses. Elon President Connie Book said students who participate in clubs and organizations have higher student success, better graduation rates and form deeper relationships. She said the launch of an E-Sports club has given numerous students leadership development opportunities that they would not have experienced without the club.
