Santiago Canyon College’s digital warriors are leaders in esports growth 06/02/2024

If you were to picture a college athlete in action, might you envision a bookish, headphone-wearing teen sitting in a darkened room, leaning toward a computer monitor, frantically hammering a keyboard and barking out instructions to nearby teammates?

Didn’t think so. Yet, in the not-too-distant future, that image may become more widely associated with collegiate sports.

That’s because the growth of esports, which encompasses the world of competitive organized video gaming, has been nothing short of stunning. Worth an estimated $1.98 million in 2023, the global esports market is expected to grow to $10.9 million by 2033, according to Market.us.

To see this trend reflected at the collegiate level, look no further than the new esports team at Santiago Community College. While the squad is currently composed of five students who compete in local and regional events, SCC is committed to an esports program rooted in expansion and success.

The program completers will participate in SCC's Commencement, and many have been accepted to four-year colleges, including UCLA, UC Berkeley and Notre Dame.

Santiago Canyon College to decommission portable classrooms known as U-Village 05/31/2024

The 30-year-old portable classrooms known as the U-Village on the Santiago Canyon College campus are no longer meeting the needs of faculty and students who use them for a variety of classes. In addition to being old, the portable classrooms were damaged by the past winter’s rains and recent earthquakes, making them unsafe, said Jeannie G. Kim, president of SCC.

A plan is in place to decommission the U-Village, which means the campus community must re-evaluate its spaces and building needs now and for the future. The first step is relocating the programs that currently use the aging portable classrooms to other rooms on campus — no small task.

“We have quite a few classes and operations that are functioning from that location,” Kim said. “So we’re developing a plan. We have an entire campus task force that is working to figure out where some of these operations and classes will go onto the main campus."
