International students came together for a night of competition with a video game tournament.

On Nov. 16 in Fayard Hall Room 101 from 5-11 p.m., international students competed in FIFA, a soccer video game.

Fawaz Adesina, a sophomore physics major, explained why he decided to set up the event.

“Coming to America was kind of a culture shock because Americans don’t really play soccer video games,” said Adesina. “So, I decided to get a bunch of international students together, and we compete in FIFA. Why not?”

According to Adesina, one of the greatest rewards of winning the tournament was that the winner would get “bragging rights about a game that is not so simple.”
