Esports is relatively new to campus life at St. Lawrence University, but this athletics team provides a unique community to students, allowing them to take their passion and channel it into strategy, teamwork, and competition. Esports Coordinator Josh Lanza and Overwatch Coach Kyle Jicha share the team's origin and what it’s doing for students on campus now, and in the future.
Josh Lanza joined St. Lawrence University in July 2021 to serve as the University’s first Esports Coordinator and specifically coaches Super Smash Bros. He and Kyle Jicha, Overwatch Coach and IT Systems Engineer, share the story of how students’ passion brought their vision for an esports team to life, and how it impacts the campus community.
