Last May, Penn State became the first university to ever field two teams in the quarterfinals of a Hearthstone Collegiate Championship—Penn State White and Penn State Blue. By working together, the teams crafted decks, refined strategies, and most importantly, passed their respective final exams in the weeks leading up to the final matches. While Penn State White fell in the first round, Penn State Blue emerged victorious in a final match against UCLA, taking the crown and glory for their school.

Dedication and camaraderie brought success to Penn State; can your school do the same? Grab some friends and sign up now and see how your university matches up in the Fall 2018 Collegiate Hearthstone Championship
