You Can Get College Credit For Playing Pokemon Go At This University

By Madeleine Williamson - Aug 14 2016

Many college students dread knocking out a required PE credit. But students at Fresno City College in Fresno, California may be a bit more excited than the rest of us. This fall, the school will offer a course centered around Pokemon Go, USA Today reported Thursday.

The school already boasts many Pokestops and Pokemon Go gyms, so it’s a prime spot to play. Campus maps distributed to students this semester will show Pokestops and gym locations. The college is taking advantage of this to create a new PE course. Walking — while trying to catch ‘em all, of course — will be a big part of the class. It will feature other cardio activities as well.

“It’s a fun way of making a fitness class work and attracting more students to physical fitness,” said Oliver Germond, who will teach the course.
