Esports at Stephens

Stephens College is proud to be home to the first varsity collegiate all-women’s esports team.

Stephens College is a member of the National Association of Collegiate eSports (NACE), which includes 90 percent of varsity collegiate esports in the country. 

Esports is quickly on its way to becoming a billion-dollar industry, and we believe women should have the same opportunities as men to succeed in this emerging business. Stephens’ mission across all our programs has been to ensure women have a seat at any table. Getting involved in esports is part of that long-standing tradition, and aligns with our mission to promote teamwork, communication skills, as well as more interest in the science and technology fields for women.

Interested in joining the team?

Scholarships will be available to eligible candidates. 

Tryouts begin this summer with a team set to form in August and compete this fall. Our team will begin competing in the game “Overwatch,” selected because of its diverse and strong female characters. Contact [email protected] to learn more about the recruitment and admissions process or contact the Office of Admissions at (573) 876-7207.

We also have an esports and gaming center on campus and an esports club on campus.
