The following are recurring programs that take place in the Ohio State Esports Arena.
Learn To Play: Video games are fun, but sometimes games can be more complex than they initially look. During our Learn To Play sessions, we’ll cover the selected title's basic concepts, controls, and strategies to help you get set up for success. Whether new to gaming or a veteran interested in trying something different, this event will have something for you.

Are you looking for a Duo or Trio partner for your Fortnite/Apex squad? A controller/sentinel for your Valorant Team? Or just simply tired of solo queuing?
