LAN events

For the ranked players among you, we engage with the NUEL every year in games like CS:GO, League of Legends, and Rocket League. Take the fight to other universities and wave that black and gold banner!

Our eSports officer will be following goings-on with NUEL, so if you're interested, keep tabs on the #nuel channel in the server!
