There’s no question that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the social dynamics of the college experience. To help students connect and engage, Mizzou Esports created a campus Discord server to host virtual games and conversations.
The free server is open to all Tigers — past, present and future. Kevin Reape, Mizzou Esports general manager, said the platform is like a “virtual quad.” Users can select their role as a student, fan, alum or future student. They also select their topics of interests, such as anime, art, food, healthy living and sports.
“The server will primarily be used by gamers at the start, but I think we’ll see other students join and talk about Mizzou football or sharing some cool artwork and videos they’ve made, or anything else,” Reape said. “Just like anything you’d see on the Quad or in the Student Center. Just students hanging out and enjoying their time together.”
