Southern New Hampshire University is launching a competitive E-sports program this fall. It'll be the first of its kind in the state.
E-sports are a team-based, competitive form of video gaming.
There's been a club team at SNHU for a few years.
But, now that the sport is officially backed by the university, players will have more resources available—a dedicated computer lab where they can practice, scholarships, and even housing for gamers.
Tim Fowler is the director of e-sports.
