"I am a leader of the Behavioral Ecology Lab this year and led the United States Geological Survey this past summer, adding my mark to a 30-year-long database studying the California newt-one of the most toxic animals on the planet! Pepperdine's well-rounded curriculum has equipped me with the tools needed to thrive in a field that I love, preparing me to work with parks and rec, fish and wildlife, or other sustainable future outlets."

Nolan's participation in the Behavioral Ecology Lab has prepared him for a career in a field he is passionate about.
