The Ringling Rollers: Ringling’s College’s inaugural Varsity Esports team!
Esports is in line with many of our students’ areas of study and our Varsity team will serve as an outlet for engagement, growth, and competition, while also providing valuable real-world experience for future careers in game design and development.
Ringling College students have long expressed their interest in Esports and formulating a Varsity team. Thanks to the College’s partnership with Mission Control and our engaged gaming community, Ringling College is thrilled to take its place amongst the elite Esports competition.
