Varsity Esports

Let's Roll!

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.

The Alfred R. Goldstein Library features a wide variety of quiet, group study, and work process spaces. Looking for a quiet study area? Make your way up to the 3rd floor to look for a book in the Research Collection or peruse the new art magazines while relaxing in comfortable seating. When the weather is nice, you can take your coffee from Roberta’s Café on the first floor to one of the four terraces to work outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Looking for meeting space to get together with a group? Check out the group study rooms, which are available on all three floors of the Goldstein Library. The 10 group study rooms are available to students on a first-come first served basis, or available for booking by Ringling College faculty and staff for group and class meetings.
