Colleges and Universities in Oklahoma have been struggling with how and when to start esports at their institutions. The desire to expand student recruiting and provide casual esports and intercollegiate competitions drives many universities to just ‘jump in’ and start esports clubs or teams. The Oklahoma Association of Collegiate Esports provides a platform for friendly universities to establish and discuss best practices for esports and generate healthy competitive play. Universities and colleges with more experience can mentor new esports programs. The OACE is committed to building community through Oklahoma college esports players and coaches.
