History

The NIU Esports Club began in 2014 under the leadership of Aaron Kimmet. In Spring 2016, the club was officially recognized as an athletic organization under Campus Recreation, and began branching out to campus more rigorously. The 2016-2017 school year saw the beginning of regular meetings and tournament participation through Tespa and Smash.gg, as well as the creation of a club bank account, official logo, t-shirts and hoodies, as well as formalized teams. As of the 2017-2018 school year, we have begun producing high level regional events such as LAN parties and tournaments!

Club Culture

The core of the club is founded around biweekly LAN Meetings, which occur biweekly throughout the semester. These function as a common ground for gamers across NIU to come to for free, with food and refreshments being provided. Tables with ethernet switches, cables, and power strips are also provided for people to bring their computers and consoles to play anything they'd like together. Announcements take place at the beginning of the meeting, and a raffle for gaming swag prizes (depending on supply) is held at the end.
