NEC in the News: The Concord Monitor published “NEC’s Esports Program Charges Along, Full of Diversity, Technology – and Good Chairs”

Dec 1, 2019

“Esports is the general term for multiplayer online game competitions, which are a multi-billion-dollar business worldwide. New England College is one of several schools in the region that have started up esports teams and clubs, seeing it as a way to lure students in an increasingly tight market and a way to provide new levels of experience and education for the always-online generation…

The school now has teams and club groups playing science-fiction and superhero-related games like Fortnite, Overwatch, League of Legends and Super Smash Brothers, plus ever-more-realistic reenactments of physical sports through games like Madden NFL and NBA.” Read the whole article.

Higher education is different from business, and the essence of the school being acquired must be taken into account.

“Think of it as an arranged marriage.

…in this case, that the cultures of two very different institutions will result in a harmonious union.

One, New England College, is on 220 acres in rural Henniker, N.H. A river flows through the campus, and a nearby covered bridge adds to the Rockwellian tableaux.

The other, the now-renamed Institute of Art and Design at New England College, is based about 30 miles away, in six renovated historic buildings in downtown Manchester. (“Gritty,” is how Professor McCay describes it).
