A Letter from The Director of Esports & Co-Curricular Innovation

When we set out to build gaming and esports energies at OU we knew from day one that desire and demand wasn't going to be the issue. It was going to be administrative buy-in and cultural mindset elevation. Four years of development and execution have brought us to this elevated state. We strategized our milestones, intential programs, and coupled it with the student voice and campus culture to build something that is 100% OU from top to bottom. Our roadmap is still only about 33% executed in 2020 and we have much more to showcase, innovate, and explore! We're barely scratching the surface. - Moog
