    When coming to Pepperdine University, be aware of the area that you are entering. There is no college town so that atmosphere will not be experienced. Even though that is not available, the location makes up for it. There are multiple beautiful beaches and various hikes, in addition to delicious restaurants and celebrity sightings. Take advantage of every opportunity given to you - the service events, events put on by the school, and situations where you can get to know your professors and get to know your peers.

    Get involved! The best way is to join a sorority/ fraternity and be part of Greek life. You'll be in on the latest details and events. Also, bring your car on campus: parking permits are free and you'll need it if you ever want to escape the Malibu Bubble. Take advantage of everything! (All the free t- shirts and admission to games) Meet people, as many as you can, there are some pretty great ones out there.

    Even though Pepperdine is very beautiful, do not come here solely based on location. It is a challenging university, especially if you are a science major. It is a great school though!

    Definitely visit it and walk around it for a day, try the food, go into town. Get used to being in shape because there are a lot of stairs.
