History

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) is a private doctoral university within the town of Henrietta in the Rochester, New York metropolitan area. RIT is composed of nine academic colleges, including the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. It is most widely known for its fine arts, computing, engineering, and imaging science programs; several fine arts programs routinely rank in the national "Top 10" according to US News & World Report.

RIT Esports was founded by Peter "XenosKing" Lam, Evan "evanextreme" Hirsh, Joe "Gladdstone" Farrell, Andy "WexAndywn" Kukielka, and Chad Weeden in the summer of 2016. The organization initially had two teams - a Heroes of the Storm and an Overwatch team - which were formed in order to compete in Tespa's Heroes of the Dorm and Tespa Collegiate Series, respectively. With heavy efforts from members of RIT Esports, esports were integrated into RIT's intramural program for the fall 2016 semester, beginning with Heroes of the Storm and rotating each following semester.

Additional teams were rapidly added or integrated into RIT Esports. A Rocket League team was created in November of 2016, with a Dota 2 team following shortly after. Teams for League of Legends, StarCraft II, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive had independently existed before the creation of RIT Esports, and joined the organization near the end of 2016. RIT Esports was officially recognized as a club by RIT on December 5th.
