SUNY Empire Esports
SUNY Empire State College is proud to offer a collegiate esports program open to all students!
- Call of Duty Cold War
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Madden NFL 21
- NBA 2K21
- Rainbow Six Siege
- Rocket League
- Super Smash Bros
Our esports program began with participation in the 2020 SUNY Chancellor's Esports Challenge, with 10 teams representing SUNY Empire. In 2021, we became members of the ECAC esports conference, which includes more than 90 colleges. We hope to expand the number of titles we play in, as well as improve our placement in future competitions!
We also encourage casual, non-competitive play between students. Our Discord server facilliates both casual and competitive activities. SUNY Empire Esports athletes come from across New York state and represent all ages and academic disciplines.
You do not have to be a hardcore gamer to join one of our teams. All levels of play are welcome!
SUNY Empire Esports Highlights
ECAC Rookie of the Week
“I’m excited for this season and for having so many players to play with in the game!!! Love the Fortnite spirit!!” – Nancy “Phancy” Jackson
League of Legends
“Captaining the League of Legends teams has been a complete blast. I wasn’t sure what I was signing up and in the beginning I felt a bit in over my head, but I lucked out by falling in with such great players who were willing to provide input and see through the early rough stages of our team’s infancy. Everyone brought a positive attitude and their genuine support, and because of that we’ve created a really comfortable gaming atmosphere for a group that I’m grateful to be a part of. I love my teammates, and I’m ineffably lucky to be participating in something so awesome. It’s a really great feeling.” – Scott “Piacular” Warner
