SU eSports: Spinandoah Showcase
8 March 2021
We talked about the misconceptions surrounding eSports as a degree program and learned what the event will look like as well as who should attend.
High school students and college transfers (and their parents) interested in being recruited to play esports in college are invited to the inaugural SPINandoah Showcase at Shenandoah University.
The event will be held March 13-14 on Shenandoah’s main campus in Winchester, in conjunction with Stay Plugged IN (SPIN), a North Carolina-based esports company with a mission to aid in collegiate esports recruiting. At least 12 colleges/universities are expected to attend, including from as far away as Kansas (Ottawa University) and South Carolina (Converse College).
SPINandoah will allow area high school students and college transfers to showcase their talents live and in-person in front of college coaches from throughout the country and to meet with these coaches one-on-one. The days will be divided between four games:
- Saturday: Rocket League and Valorant
- Sunday: Overwatch and Super Smash Brothers
Colleges and universities will be on hand and stationed at information booths to discuss their esports programs. College coaches and representatives from SPIN will discuss esports during live seminars for parents and students in Halpin-Harrison Hall.
