Pangasinan State University is actively taking part in different competitions and sports. Recently, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) launched a friendship game, and a student from the College of Computing Sciences represented Pangasinan State University (PSU) last June 11 at Quezon City Memorial Circle.

The Collegiate Center for eSports (CCE) recently announced a partnership with the Commission on Higher Education for the first-ever CHED Friendship Games last month, including e-sports. 

Esports, particularly Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, were featured in the Friendship Games, and it is expected that the National Tertiary Games would be a step in the right direction for the promotion and development of Esports.

Through its Tertiary Sports Development Program, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) organized the first CHED Friendship Games 2022 (National Tertiary Games Pilot Testing) with the theme “Balik Galaw, Balik Laro, at Palakasan.” Through the conducted tournament, the CHED Friendship Games 2022 should be a key to promoting physical activities, the practice of sports, and wellness as a means of transforming sports into the new norm.

At the event, 31 selected higher education institutions (HEIs) from different cities and municipalities in Regions I, II, III, IV, and the National Capital Region (NCR) participated last June 10, 2022, at Marikina Sports Complex.

This freshman from the College of Computing Sciences is absolutely incredible. They reached the elimination round and played with Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) and Pateros Technological College in Manila. And during the tournament, Ma’am Melani Caronongan and Sir Frederick Lalimarmo served as their coaches. Despite the fact that Ma’am Caronngan is not a fan of Mobile Legend, she did her best to assist and guide our representative.
