UIU esports featured in three-part series

Upper Iowa is among Iowa colleges and universities featured in The Courier (Waterloo, Iowa) three-part series on the rising phenomenon of esports. UIU announced the launch of its esports program in February 2018. Esports became the eighth program added to the Peacock Athletics Department roster since the university’s move up to NCAA Division II prior to the 2005-06 academic year.

Esports features online, organized video game competition between institutions. Despite video game and esports mainstream popularity, institutions have just recently jumped on board with the thought of esports as a viable intercollegiate program.

The first part of the newspaper series and links to the additional featured articles, can be be viewed on The Courier website here.
