Learn, Teach, Grow
College is an opportunity for self-discovery, and that should not stop when it comes to student organizations. We are students by profession, but we are mentors by necessity. Sharing learned knowledge is tremendously important to our organization.
The main goal of our community is to promote member growth into not only better gamers, but better people as well.
Act with Integrity, Be Genuine
When hidden behind a computer screen, it's very easy to be disconnected from your actions and their consequences, but we believe that as students of CU who are proud to call ourselves Buffaloes, honesty is key within our community and oneself.
No one likes a cheater or hacker; and, making sure that everyone is included, and no one is taking advantage makes the entire organization better.
We believe that everyone should be okay being themselves when in our community. Both your name and your tag should represent your best self – the person you want to be. With tens of thousands of unique games, every single gamer is different; But, it’s crucial that we understand gaming as a catalyst for relationships that transcend typical societal boundaries.
Fuel your Passion
CU Gaming wants to encourage everyone to pour into the things that make them excited and help them make the most of it. We want the possibility for people to pursue a career in the video games industry to become a reachable reality.
Find your Balance
Games are addicting, and quickly become a problem if you continuously use them to hide from life. Games can be an excellent intermittent escape from stress-inducing responsibilities; but, if you let these problems build up, they can quickly overwhelm even the most capable individual.
Accept Difference, Enrich Community
On the competitive side we hold our teams to a strict GPA-standard, following in line with our more traditional club sport brethren.
