Abstract
Twice each semester the second floor of Georgia Southern University's IT Building transforms from classrooms and computer labs into the university's largest student gaming event. Georgia Southern University's chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) -- under the close supervision of IT faculty -- hosts the LAN party-style event with an open invitation to the entire student body to come play games, enjoy pizza and Monster drinks, and socialize with other gamers. With over thirty-five of these events under their belt, the faculty have found unique ways to spark learning and generate teachable moments with the students throughout the event.
