Name: Louis Coppola
Hometown: Long Island, N.Y.
Year in School: Senior
Minor: Graphic Design
Louis Coppola wants to go big. By utilizing the education he has gained at Coastal, he wants to take his valuable skills and work for an entertainment company in either Los Angeles or New York City. When you are young and have a background in marketing and graphic design, doors open for those who are willing to work hard.
Arriving at Coastal from Long Island, N.Y., Louis decided to become a Chanticleer because of the location. He was ready to venture away from his hometown and the opportunity to escape campus for evening beach outings was too much for him to turn down. Over the past four years, Louis has maintained steady academic progress while prospering in his fraternity (Pi Kappa Alpha) and staying active with the Outdoor Adventure Club.
But ask Louis about his defining moment while a student at CCU and he won’t hesitate to tell you about his study abroad experience. For six months, Louis lived and studied in Australia. He traveled the entire east coast of the continent and enjoyed the time of his life.
Although the two major cities Louis wants to potentially land in might not offer the scenic sights that Australia did, they will surely provide him with another set of life changing moments. We wish him the best.
