William McCoy

I have traveled down a very long road to be able to be a student.

​​After graduating from high school, William had no desire to go to college and instead enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. After experiencing extraordinary things and traveling the world, William was inspired to continue his education and pursue a bachelor’s degree.

William now attends California State University, Fullerton and is set to become the first person in his family to earn a university degree. Prior to CSU Fullerton, William attended Orange Coast College, where he served as president of the Student Veterans Group and a member of three honor societies. William is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communications and hopes to earn a master’s degree in business.

William is also a member of the Cal State Fullerton Roller Hockey Team and is always looking for ways to give back, including volunteering at philanthropic events and toy drives for low-income youth.
