About Us

VR club typically holds a general meeting on Fridays to discuss recent news in virtual/augmented reality and then experience virtual reality either in-person or through online demos.
Meetings always revolve around a theme or central exploration point, ranging from new games in the VR space to educational experiences to learning more about VR/AR. With meetings online, we are doing the best we can to still reach out to all our members and make everyone included, even if they may not own a headset.

VR Drift

VR Drift is a class taught on Discord as an introduction to the Unity game engine with a focus on developing VR applications with it. It is taught by Robbie on Saturdays from 1:00-3:00, and anyone is free to join!

VR Esports

Illini Esports has two competitive teams dedicated to VR Esports (specifically Beat Saber and Echo Arena). The teams currently compete in the Collegiate VR Esports League (CVRE League) against colleges across the nation. Last season, we competed in Division 1 and Division 2 for Beat Saber, but we are open to competing in other games as well. You do not need to have any experience or even a VR headset to join! We train every Saturday from 2pm to 6pm in Armory 172. Join the Discord server if you are interested!
