The computers in the PC Lounge are typically on the higher end, with graphics cards and memory that allow for the best gaming experience possible.


But the PC Lounge is, unfortunately, not an all-encompassing solution, with the biggest drawback being on the competitive side of things.

While on the surface the space does not address the competitive portions of the esports program, the PC Lounge is a great foundational piece on which a competitive program can be built for the future.
