Esports Comes to Bloomfield College

 
Bloomfield College has entered the exciting world of Esports. Beginning with a soft launch in January, the College will launch an Esports program led by Student Affairs and Athletics.
 
Funding for the new program was made possible by the generosity of Bloomfield College Trustee Joanne Marren. Marren, who serves as Board Secretary and joined the Board in 2013, has also established the Therese V. Marren Endowed Scholarship Fund in memory of her mother, and has supported other campus initiatives, including assisting the marketing department.
 
"We are extremely excited about the introduction of Esports at the College," said Dr. Patrick Lamy, Vice President for Student Affairs. "This program will not only enrich campus life, but also attract a new population of gamers to our institution and our Game Design program. We look forward to the official launching in spring 2019."
 
A position on the Esports roster will be competitively available to all interested students, both incoming and returning. Among other qualifications that will be announced shortly, students on the roster must meet eligibility requirements including full-time enrollment, and progress toward degree requirements. Tryouts will be announced at a later date.
 
Through participating in competitive Esports teams, students learn the same skills as other sports, including leadership, communication, perseverance, and determination. Bloomfield College's Esports program will include three teams consisting of up to six players per team. The teams will share a head coach and assistant coach, and the teams will compete with teams at other institutions. The College also plans to partner with high schools that have Esports programs, making scholarship opportunities likely in the near future.
 
"I am thrilled Bloomfield College will now add Esports to our athletic programs," shared Athletic Director Sheila Wooten. "We have identified Esports as an untapped area of student interest and, with our high-ranking Creative Arts & Technology academic program, it was a natural fit."
 
The addition of an Esports program is intended to promote a holistic approach to the college experience, while attracting students who possess skills including critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork, which are transferable to success in the classroom and workforce.
