Block House RenderingThe University of Olivet is one of six league members

The University of Olivet is one of six Michigan Division III schools to unite to form the Michigan College Block House Esports League (BEL). The inaugural season for the Michigan College BEL kicked off in September, offering fans an exhilarating experience with games such as Smash Ultimate, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Rocket League and more.

Acting as a network for colleges and high schools in the area, the league is unique to the region. It aims to foster local rivalries, bolstering the spirit and camaraderie that Division III schools have long celebrated.

The University of Olivet esports team has competed in two competitions since the season began and has a current record of 2-2.

The fall season runs through October and is set to culminate with in-person playoffs in November. Matches will be hosted at Block House in Alma, Michigan, within the renovated historic Wright Opera House. Spring season playoffs will occur at Block House in Olivet, a new venue slated to open later this fall.

The University of Olivet’s Director of Esports, Elizabeth Layton, is excited about Block House at Olivet, which will feature a high-level esports competitive space, restaurant and bar, “Block House’s facilities are a literal game changer for esports on a high school and collegiate level,” she said. “The opportunities the Olivet location will bring are limitless, both to the esports ecosystem and the local community.”
