The University of Mount Union welcomes the addition of esports to its student life offerings beginning in the fall of 2019. Mount Union’s esports program, much like its academics, will be grounded in the liberal arts tradition and focus on the holistic development of its students. Students on the esports team will be required to hold membership in at least one other campus organization and participate in community service activities.
The institution will be able to offer scholarships to qualified students and Mount Union is currently 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, and Rocket League are eligible to receive a scholarship. Students will also be required to maintain a GPA of over 2.5 and not be under academic probation.
