Statement from Illinois Tech Esports

We are excited and honored to host Twitch representatives and you at this community learning event Illinois Tech Esports is offering - to be held Saturday (July 20th) at our Chicago campus in the South loop of the city. With this, we hope to encourage more conversations about gaming, streamer lifestyle and many prominent issues that impact the community. Our hope is to have a day of stimulating discussion where both high school & college students, active streamer/esports enthusiasts, and parents interested in their students' passions will be able to interact with one another.

As one of the older collegiate esports organizations in the scene, Illinois Tech Esports (ITE) holds a unique position where a majority of its events and decisions are solely led by student initiatives. The creation of our esports center on campus, housing 14 Alienware setups, an Oculus VR setup, and various consoles and TV's, was through multiple conversations with school administration and students working together. Budgeting, coordinating, and designing tasks/roles are created and monitored by students where it truly is a collaborative environment where students of all majors work together alongside direct input from IIT faculty and professionals in the industry. We hope that this event will not only show you a first hand experience of life as a streamer/gamer, but also the unique culture that ITE fosters through an experience characterized by educational and meaningful opportunity.

Registration is FREE and additional details such as sample schedule(s) and room locations are available on the website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or feedback. For more than five years, ITE has been an exceptional and momentous experience for students around the world, and whether this is your first look at esports or not, we look forward to welcoming you this summer.
