The University of Mount Union welcomed the addition of esports to its student life in 2019. Mount Union’s esports program, much like its academics, is grounded in the liberal arts tradition and focus on the holistic development of its students. Students on the esports team are required to hold membership in at least one other campus organization and participate in community service activities.

Scholarship Opportunities

The institution offers scholarships to qualified students, and was the first school in Stark County to have a program that offers scholarships to its students. Students that participate in varsity level teams for League of Legends, Overwatch,  Rocket League, Super Smash Bros.: Ultimate, and Valorant are eligible to receive a scholarship. Students are also required to maintain a GPA of over 2.5 and not be under academic probation.

We have built a state-of-the-art, dedicated esports facility right on campus. The space is intended to be a home for esports on campus, and a place where the esports community can prosper. The center is outfitted with custom Respawn Gaming chairs embroidered with the UMU Esports Logo. The Esports Center also includes a Varsity Players Lounge intended to be used for strategy and reviewing game film. The entrance to the facility is the back of the old Family Dollar building on the corner of Union and State.
