They have 18 state-of-the-art gaming computers to choose from and two Nintendo Switches to use on the TVs.‘We do try to help everyone’: Vacuum shop gives back to those in needRyan Krumrei, one of the ESports Student Managers said, “We had over 60 people come in for the grand opening event on Wednesday and a lot of students are saying hey we want to play games, we want to compete.”Krumrei said working in the lounge has already improved his sense of community at school.“I can tell you right now for me it already has. I was just coming to school to get my degree and get my career started,” said Krumrei. “But this has given me a spot at UW-GB where I can get together with a group of people and feel more at home.”
