Today we meet incoming freshman Electrical and Computer Engineering major Matt Gandy from Stratford, NJ (Camden County). Matt will be living on campus in the fall. 

What are a few things you’re looking forward to at Rowan next year?

I Matt playing ice looking forward to all the new people I will meet in my first year at Rowan. I hope to form friendships that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

How or why did you choose your major?

I chose Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) because of how the times are changing. I wanted to pick a major that would allow me to make an impact on the world, and ECE seems to be a great fit for me. I always strive to do great things and I want to solve problems. The ECE major at Rowan was a perfect choice.

Why did you choose a university close to home?

I have always been successful with my family’s support. They have always been there for me, and I want to be close to them. Rowan also has one of the greatest ECE programs in the nation. I could not pass up the opportunity.

Why Rowan?

I chose Rowan because of the many opportunities they have to offer. I am able to continue playing hockey while being able to pursue a great education. I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life at Rowan.

Like what you see?
