The second installment of Game On!, an exciting online gaming event, takes place on Wednesday, December 16. The event will star Semi Ojeleye of the Boston Celtics, along with local high school students and Becker College Esports students. The event, featuring Rocket League, will be held live at 6:30 pm on the Becker College Esports Twitch channel: twitch.tv/becker_college_esports
“I know you have some serious talent at Becker College, and I can’t wait to compete and mix it up with you guys,” said Semi Ojeleye when asked about playing Rocket League with the Becker College Varsity Esports team, which is coming off its recent playoff berth in the NECC’s fall championship season.
The event will wrap up the Fall 2020 semester for Becker students, who completed the semester remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions. “This is a great opportunity for our students to celebrate the end of the semester and ring in the holiday season with a fun, competitive event,” said Donald Desrochers, program director. “With so many uncertainties and the lack of in-person events, it is essential we provide our students with a positive outlet and a sense of normalcy whenever possible.”
The Celebrities for Students event on December 16, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, will be streamed LIVE on the College’s twitch channel twitch.tv/becker_college_esports. Students will match up with Semi Ojeleye and a possible special guest for games of the 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 Rocket League.
