Westminster College Admissions is hosting a local area network party (LAN) for prospective high school students, current students, and alumni Saturday, Oct. 30, beginning at 10 a.m.
"A LAN party is an event where everyone brings their computers to one central location, hook up their computers to a small network, and play various computer games," said Stanton Fleming, coordinator of user and desktop services at Westminster College. "The winners of the tournament can walk away with prizes such as t-shirts, hats, mouse pads, posters, software and even computer hardware."
"You never know who is going to be on a team, you just join the game and the server puts you where it needs a player," said Colin Dean, a sophomore computer science major from Volant.
