Originally known as the Game Design Collective, the Esports and Game Design Collective of Hunter College was founded on November 9th, 2016. After being denied to charter officially as a club with Hunter College, the organization ended up joining forces with a multitude other games-related clubs and submitted an appeal to try and charter together as one. The appeal was denied and the organization was told to wait until the next application cycle.
The organization continued to operate anyways, thanks to the dedication of its members and the support of the Theater Department. In September 2018, the Esports and Game Design Collective of Hunter College was approved to charter and became an official student organization of the college. We are proud to be able to continue to provide a place where everyone, regardless of their relationship to games or the games industry can come together in a welcoming environment.
