After much anticipation, The Sports Gaming Center opened at the DePaul Center in the Loop.

Following Robert Morris University’s lead, DePaul began making preparations for the gaming center two years ago.

DePaul says they hope the center will attract students to the university as esports programs at other universities have done in the past.

The space is open to other students who wish to host a tournament as well. DePaul will provide snacks and drinks to students looking to hold their own gaming events.

The esports program features two popular competitive games: Rocket League and League of Legends, with plans to expand the gamelist in the future.

    Thank you for speaking truth to power. You have explained how and why the NTT Faculty of the English Language Learning Program (ELLP) are being treated so inequitably by Loyola Unuversity. During last week”s labor negotiations, Loyola”s management team ignored data presented to them by ELLP Faculty on comparable intensive English programs at peer institutions such as DePaul, IIT, and Boston University. Admin also made claims about ELLP instruction, curriculum, and workload that were not based in fact. When ELLP challenged admin with the facts, Patrick Boyle stated simply, “I disagree. FT ELLP Faculty teach 18 hours/week of academic English a week for 48 weeks a year, a workload much heavier that that of any language faculty in CAS. Furthermore, ELLP Faculty are not compensated for the extra workload they are required to carry year around. Even if they receive the raise offered by admin in negotiations, they will still be paid significantly less than the NTT FT faculty in CAS, despite having terminal degrees in the field of Teaching English as a Second Language/Applied English Linguistics. Admin also argued that because ELLP enrollment is down and there are only four FT ELLP Faculty, the University was not willing to make changes in workload. Whether there are 4 or 40 Faculty teaching in a unit, they should all be treated fairly. Loyola management bargaining team for ELLP Faculty was dismissive, condescending, and disingenuous. What an indignity.
