Build better experiences

As a leader of a Tespa chapter, you’ll be taking on the challenge of building a home for college gaming on your campus.  Host amazing viewing parties.  Produce epic tournaments.  Take the reins of your chapter and unite gamers at your school like never before. 

To support our chapters, we work with partners to building epic campaigns where chapters across North America can host officially-supported events with Tespa prizes and loot to give away.  Campaigns are a great way to level-up any events, from chapter meetings to social gatherings to massive LAN events.  Whatever your chapter’s ambitions, we're here to help.

Networking with other student leaders at Tespa gives you access to a wealth of knowledge and community support. Our leaders meet regularly to discuss best practices, share experiences, and help others follow in the footsteps of successful college organizations.  We also employ a full team of Regional Coordinators to provide year-round mentorship and support for our chapters.  If you’ve got questions, we have the answers!
