E-Sports Program for BSC

BISMARCK, N.D. - You don't have to be in peak physical condition to be a college athlete anymore.

Bismarck State College is now forming its E-sports program, complete with dozens of partial scholarships for video gamers, who will compete against other schools.

"It's huge for us, because obviously we get these kids to come in here and take our programs, and hopefully maybe someday BSC will have a Gaming Management program through a cyber security program. So it could lead to something else," said Buster Gilliss, BSC athletics director.

BSC is renovating a space for the E-Sports Program, which will have up to 25 monitors and special lighting.
