Learn More about Gaming in College
The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) has teamed up with the UC San Diego esports program to create a mentorship program for high school students focused on esports and gaming.
Through the program, which started last year, UC San Diego students who are involved with esports mentor San Diego County high school students with a focus on opportunities for students to get experience to college gaming. Topics include:
- Careers in esports
- Healthy gaming habits
- Introduction to college gaming
- How to be successful in college or careers while enjoying gaming
“We are excited about this partnership and currently signing up high school students who want to learn more about gaming in college,” said Mark Brickley, a coordinator with SDCOE’s Educational Technology team.
Meetings for the new cohort will be held virtually the first Wednesday of the month beginning in January and will conclude on May 17.
High school students can sign up using this form.
