Esports at Southern Miss is a multi-phased program centered around competitive esports teams established to represent the university in intercollegiate competition and providing a place for every student to game!
The primary mission of this community is to develop learning focused, connected, and healthy individuals through competition, community, and esports experiences.
The secondary mission of this community is to prepare students for post-graduation with non-competitive industry training in their chosen field of study.
Becoming a member of the esports program requires you to be a student at the University of Southern Mississippi. There is no cost associated with membership. We have 3 tiers of student engagement:
1. Signed Student-Athletes

3. Gaming Club Members
