Chess is a science in the form of a game. . .let the games begin!

New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Highlander Chess Club is comprised of current students and we are always seeking to improve our skills in order to compete in collegiate and senior level competitions in the tri-state area.

These competitions allow us to showcase the hard work and skillset of our team and allows us to improve as we continue to compete.

The ability to participate in such events builds confidence in the team as we continue to hone our skills, increase the number of team members and garner more accolades for NJIT.
