"One of the most important mentors I have at Pepperdine is my research advisor, Dr. Joe Fritsch with whom I have worked with since the second semester of my first year conducting research in the inorganic chemistry lab. I am especially proud of my accomplishments in chemistry research and I was recently published in the Dalton Transactions with Dr. Fritsch and a recent Pepperdine alumnus. I have also had the opportunity through the Natural Science Division to present my research at various national conferences. Dr. Fritsch has been a great person to talk to for academic advice and is willing to help with all the issues college has thrown at me. I don't think this type of mentorship would have been possible at any other school and it has really shaped my time at Pepperdine and helped to prepare me for medical school."
