Our Community

The EGD Collective is a network of college students and their supporters from across the globe, based out of New York City. We are a space for everyone who loves games to call home.


Join us at our events around New York City, or hop on into our Discord server for virtual events every week! We host tournaments, workshops, game nights, and more.

Whether you're into game development, esports, board games, or tabletop RPGs, we've got something for everyone.

I was by myself. I was a lone wolf and never had been part of a lasting community, but EGD has connected me with others. These connections, along with the community's friendliness and openness to different opinions and backgrounds, have allowed me to have the experiences necessary to build into where I am. My intership is essencially my full-time job now, and I wouldn't have been able to do it if not for the people at EGD. Oshin Tudayan, Marketing Assistant, LBCC.

SIGs promote socialization, networking, & collaboration over mutual interests, identities, or issues of concern for our members. These groups can cover game genres, specific games, professions, & more.

SIGs include groups such as:

  • Game Design

  • Super Smash Bros


  • MAGES (Marginalized Genders)


  • Team Z (Student Leaders)



Over 60% of students at colleges and universities experience some form of food insecurity, housing insecurity, or homelessness. 1 in 3 have been "too depressed to function". 89% of low-income first-generation students leave college without a degree. 1 in 5 students are parenting a child. 

Our SSCs can help you with a range of needs - such as applying for FAFSA, SNAP benefits, unemployment, or other assistance programs, contacting campus offices (Financial Aid, disability accommodations, counseling, campus security, academic advising), and locating food pantries, emergency housing, or mental health services. College is rough. We've got your back.
