Galloway, N.J. — Going to college hasn’t really been on Keyoni Benjamin’s mind.

The Middle Township High School senior said she was perfectly content graduating and just getting a job. But that changed on March 6 after visiting Stockton University’s esports facility.

“It’s really cool here. I think I might go,” said the 18-year-old from Vineland who loves playing Overwatch. “At first, I was like I don’t really want to go to college and just get a job. But after looking around the campus and seeing the esports team, I think I might come here.”

Stockton esports supporters hope Benjamin is the first of many students who see the university as not just a great place to play video games and compete in events, but also to take classes leading to a possible degree or a career in the growing field.
