Academic Scholars

Academic Scholars do the following:

  • Connect students to resources on and off-campus, hold one on one meetings through office hours for First-Year students.
  • Plan monthly large scale socials for Fiat Lux participants to foster connections, community, and relationships. 
  • Through formal and informal experiences, Academic Scholars assist in building an on-campus community that recognizes and embraces the identities, values, and beliefs of all students.
  • Promote resources and opportunities for active participation to enhance student development. 

*Please allow up to 2 days space when scheduling a second meeting

Hello! My name is Martín Arredondo and I am a third-year working as an Academic Scholar for this school year. I am majoring in Political Science with a minor in Education. I am from Sylmar CA, a city that resides in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. For fun, I enjoy playing basketball, video games, and guitar. I love music and some of my favorite artists are J. Cole, Ariel Camacho, & Virlan Garcia. I am a very friendly person and I am always willing to help those in need.
