The Office of Student Life & Engagement is developing a competitive esports program!

Opening Fall of 2023!

The new esports arena is in the Student Union Building and houses 10 gaming PCs, Nintendo Switches, and a broadcasting/ streaming station. Games such as Rocket League, Overwatch, and League of Legends will be offered. If you would like to be a part of the start-up process, join the Esports Club. The Grand Opening will be in September!

For more information, or to expand esports to the Fauquier Campus, join the Discord or contact Angie Schroeder at [email protected].


All sports are recreational and vary in format. Students are encouraged to start a club sport for any interest that is not represented by the Office of Student Life and Engagement. You can learn about starting a club here.

Intramural sports programs are on hold until there is enough interest to support a program. If you wish to start a program, contact Angie at [email protected]. All participants must have a signed liability waiver before engaging in intramural sports. You may bring the waiver to the activity.

Each class incorporates asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practice) Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation), and meditation. It can be adapted, adjusted and accommodated based on the student’s physical condition using available props. The class will help you maintain your natural condition: a body of optimum health, strength and flexibility, senses under total control, a well-disciplined, clear and clam mind, and a life filled with peace and joy. Om shanti, shanti, shanti. 🙏
