Brian Nguyen & Stephanie Sunthonthip of Georgia State University's eSports Team will be hanging with TERMINUS & Friends this Tuesday! Think of it as a talk show with industry professionals while they play popular games. Join us December 19th at 7pm on Twitch (& YouTube) at twitch.tv/terminusevent.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Stephanie Sunthonthip is a student at Georgia State University pursuing a dual degree in Computer Science and Physics. She is currently an analyst for the GSU League of Legends varsity team and is heavily involved with the GSU eSports organization.  Her interests include playing games (duh!), crocheting, binge watching YouTube game playthroughs and figure skating. Stephanie's favorite video games include League of Legends, the Final Fantasy franchise and Shining Force EXA.

Twenty year-old Brian Nguyen is the Varsity jungler for the GSU League of Legends team. He has had a strong interest in games ever since he was a kid. His gaming experience began with Game Boy Color and from there he went on to primarily computer games. In addition to gaming, Brian loves food and aquatic animals.

Georgia State University has introduced programs for students interested in eSports, organized multiplayer video game competitions that are often broadcast, and which have spurred the development of collegiate teams at institutions across the United States.

Georgia State has affiliated with two organizations that enable national tournament competition and regional play. The university has joined the National Association of Collegiate eSports (NACE) and its 33 affiliated varsity eSports programs (scholarship granting NACE universities include UC-Irvine, Western Kentucky University and the University of Utah). Georgia State is also among Georgia universities starting the Georgia Esports League (GEL), which begins tournament play in September 2017. Along with Georgia State, students from Georgia Institute of Technology, Kennesaw State University, the University of North Georgia and others will compete in the games “Paladins” and “Brawlhalla.”

TERMINUS & Friends is a live stream held every Tuesday.
