Meet #Rowan2025 freshman Henry Conde! Henry is an incoming Electrical & Computer Engineering major from Vineland, NJ (Cumberland County). He shares what he’s most looking forward to when coming to college and offers some advice to high school seniors.
Welcome to Rowan! Could you share with us one thing you are looking forward in college?
I am looking forward to working with others to create amazing projects!
What is one hobby, activity, sport or club you were a part of in high school that you’d like to continue in college?
One hobby I did for high school was creating my own music and performing them on various talent shows. I definitely hope to continue this in college.
Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself in college? Grow a new skill? Try a new interest? Starting a new activity, sport or club?
I’m hoping to improve my presentation skills in college. I am also trying to improve my singing voice and I would love to interact with talented people to see what I can learn from them.
What majors are you considering and why?
I already made my plan to major in computer and electrical engineering.
Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events? If so, which ones, and what did you think?
I did do a virtual event for Rowan, I don’t remember which one it was, but I was astounded by the architecture of all the buildings. I also was amazed at how many clubs and events there are.
Do you have advice for other high school seniors who haven’t committed to a school yet?
My advice to other high school seniors who haven’t committed to a school yet would be to go local. When you get a job, you can go to any state you’d like; but in college, local is the better way to go to save money. Stay closer to family. Local is just all around easier.
Where are you going to live next year?
I’m commuting from home.
What is one thing about Rowan itself that you liked?
The thing I like about Rowan the most is the architecture of all the buildings, especially Holly Pointe Commons. It used bright grey, yellow and white to create a scattered pattern on a building, which is very unique and very detailed. I also like how close it is to my family, including my grandparents.
