This 1L is prominently featured in the cover story of the new UC Irvine Magazine, which details Williams' military service and his efforts to provide support to fellow veterans who are now students. As an undergraduate at UCI, Williams started the campus' Alpha Psi Omega veterans fraternity to foster camaraderie among veteran-students and provide support as they transition to academic life.

Williams himself described feeling out of step with his fellow undergraduates when he first arrived at UCI after serving four years in the U.S. Marines. Fellow students "usually didn't know what to say to me. They'd ask, 'Is going to war like [the video game] 'Call of Duty'?'" Read the full story: "Coming home to UCI" (PDF).
