Graceland University Esports has gotten off to a good start in the team's inaugural year. So far, the Graceland League of Legends team is 3-0 in their Iowa league tier. They have had impressive finishes against Kirkwood Community College, Northwestern College and the University of Iowa Team Black.
Alumnus Roger Powell recently returned to Graceland as the director of the writing center, completing a full circle that started when he began to find his way as an undergraduate student several years ago. Powell graduated from Graceland in 2012, but the direction he ultimately chose in his educational path had been a long time coming.
