Quest Gaming and Robert Morris University Are Taking eSports to the Next Level
At Quest Gaming, our goal is to support top tier esports athletes and to help propel the gaming community towards living a healthier lifestyle. That’s why we are so excited to announce our partnership with Robert Morris University’s esports program.
RMU was the first US higher education institution to offer esports scholarships and has pledged $1.5 million in gaming scholarships for the 2016-2017 school year. The program, under the leadership of Kurt Melcher, has garnered national attention and has sparked a frenzy of other colleges establishing their own esports programs.
Quest Nutrition is beyond proud to be supporting the RMU esports players & staff by providing them with the healthy foods they need to succeed both in the classroom and in game. Our ideals are predicated on the notion that a healthy body – through a focus on nutrition and exercise – can lead to improved performance in all aspects of one’s life, including competitive gaming. We’re ecstatic that RMU esports has decided to adopt that approach by putting an emphasis on player wellbeing in the years to come.
Our first piece of co-created content is an interview with RMU League of Legends player Derek “West Coast Carry” Michaeu. Michaeu was one of the first members of the esports program and is very excited about RMU taking health an wellness more seriously program-wide. You can read the entire interview here and make sure to follow Quest Gaming to keep up with all our announcements.
