The Collegiate eSports Connection (CEC) is a professional gaming league where college students compete in large scale tournaments across New England on behalf of their college. The CEC takes pride in its inclusivity being the only professional eSports league to not require formal, pre-established teams to compete. With the collaboration of college gaming clubs, we host our events on-campus pairing them with students from other colleges to compete for glory.

Outside of being in-person to facilitate events and meet college clubs for in-person meetings, the CEC Executive Director primarily works from home.
