Next in line on our list of goodbyes, we have The Guardian of the Vive, Henry “Crorad” Fowler. Always there to lend a helping hand, Henry has exemplified the kind, welcoming attitude that makes Rutgers Esports such a great community. Henry has served the Eboard as a member of both the Content Creation and SysTech committees with his phenomenal camera work and ability to remain unperturbed and calmly handle any stressful tasks at hand.
If he wasn’t behind a camera taking shots for Content Creation, Henry could be found throwing it down on Beat Saber at most of our events. His craft of introducing newcomers to the world of Virtual Reality has been received with such affection that he even had to create a methodical queue system to ensure to people an equal opportunity for experience. On regular club days, Henry could be found all over, bringing with him an air of positivity whether he was swamped with work or not.
Graduating with a B.S. in Information Technology and Informatics and a Minor in Creative Writing, Henry hopes to pursue a career in the IT field. Henry, we have no doubt that wherever you end up working will have been made better by your presence. We know you’ll do great things and we wish you the absolute best of luck!!
When did you get involved with our community?
I got involved back during the Scarlet Classic III—that’s when I first tried Rutgers Esports out as a club. However, I didn’t become an officer until the beginning of Fall Semester.
What degree are you graduating with?
I’m graduating with a Major in ITI, and a minor in Creative Writing.
What did you do in your time with us?
I mostly handled VR during my time at Rutgers Esports, however, I also helped with some event setup and did photographic and video work.
What drew you to League of Legends as an esport? What other games do you enjoy?
League, barring the toxic community, just seemed like a pretty fun game to me, and everyone in the club was a hundred times more chill than everyone who spewed overtly hateful comments in chat. I like a lot of other games, like a lot of games on the Nintendo Switch and PS4, as well as Warframe, FFXIV & other MMOs.
What are your plans after you graduate? Are you going to continue going to majors?
I’m mostly seeking IT work now that I’ve graduated, as well as internships to further my resume and credibility for future careers.
What has been the most rewarding part of being on Content Creation?
Probably knowing how much we were accomplishing and the sheer scope of things we were making happen, as well as the content team itself. We really felt like a family.
What’s your fondest memory of your time at Esports?
Probably TSCV, honestly, even though it was my last event. That or the club meetings or after club hangouts.
Which League of Legends character do you associate the most with?
Warwick because I tend to wander and drift from place to place, and dislike outright conflict unless I’m needed.
