Student Experience
Victor Fong
Victor Fong California Poly San Luis Obispo, B.S.

According to Victor Fong, attending College of San Mateo was one of the easiest choices he made after getting discharged from the United States Marine Corps. The transition from a Marine to student was not an easy one but Victor kept an open mind and stayed motivated which helped him meet the challenges he faced.  “My influential professors and certifying officials for VA benefits at CSM were very helpful in mentoring and keeping me on track with my goal to transfer to a four-year institution within two years.” After transferring, Victor earned a B. S. degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Currently, he is employed by one of the largest professional services firms in the world, recognized as one of the Big Four.  Victor explains, “This opportunity presented itself through my higher education experience and was largely shaped by my working experience while I was a Marine.”
