New Frontier, New Athlete

Until recently, athletic scholarships were reserved for athletes who compete on the field. Midland University in Fremont is among the first institutions to pioneer a new frontier of athletics with an eSports collegiate athletic program. Now gamers who play competitive team sports onscreen can compete at a varsity-level and even attend college on an e-Sports scholarship.
