Letter to the Editor
Sunday, July 13, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

Trib readers may have heard recently that a university named Robert Morris is now giving “athletic” scholarships for students to play the “League of Legends” video game. What some readers may not be aware of is that there are two Robert Morris universities in the United States. The one that is giving out video-game scholarships is in Illinois, and it is not affiliated with RMU in Moon Township.

Some Pittsburgh-area residents, including some of our alumni, have called or emailed us, quite upset that we would give scholarships for something so frivolous, at least in their opinion, as playing a video game. Rest assured that while we continue to offer scholarships for excellence in academics and sports, we are not offering any money for playing video games.

Naturally, we wish our namesake in the Land of Lincoln no ill will. We just want to make sure that no one confuses our two institutions.
