Why Twitch Student?

Students are the future of our industry and it is our goal to equip students with skills and experiences necessary to participate in the gaming and esports industry. Through clubs, students have continued to amaze us in their ability challenge themselves, compete in a high level of play and build a vibrant community on campus. With Twitch Student, we offer students the means to create a self sustaining community and represent their university on Twitch.

We want to make sure that students are empowered and administrators support them so that when they do compete, they’re competing at the highest levels is they so choose. If not, they have a huge community on their campus that welcomes them with open arms, whether you’re a bronze player or challenger.  There is still a structure for them to have a community, great experiences while they’re in college and opportunity for them to see this industry and try to find themselves in it, in whatever way that might be
