Be a part of the fastest-growing club at Southeast.

Esports is a rapidly growing industry that offers a form of sports competition through video games. Just like traditional sports, Southeast students wanted a gaming space to gather, play, compete, and relax, so we built one. 

At Southeast, we want our students to have every opportunity to find their fit during their time in college. The Esports program and Esports Arena give students a community to compete in collegiate leagues to go for glory, or simply provide a great place to play recreationally and make new friends. The club also offers resume-building opportunities such as leadership roles, team management experience, broadcast production, content creation, event organization, coaching, graphic design, and much more! Whether you're a competitive or recreational gamer, you can join over 400 other Southeast students in the largest recreational services club on campus.
