    Pepperdine University offers much more to its students than a gorgeous view from hills in Malibu; it provides students with an encouraging environment, unparalleled opportunities such as the study abroad programs, challenging academics, and a loving community. Faith is integrated into the classroom, enabling professors to instill moral values that will be used later in life to push them forward in their careers.

    There is a heavy emphasis on religion. Rules are meant to be broken, you can find fun if you look for it. There is nothing better than walking through campus on a stressful day and seeing the ocean.

    Pepperdine is truly great! You'll meet a lot of people here and they say they hate it but really they love it. The weather is perfect, the view is breathe taking. Pepperdine has so many opportunities. Their networking is incredible, very helpful for the future. The people are amazing. Sometimes they are too superficial. You just want someone that's real.

    It is accurately called the Conservative USC both in caliber of education and social policy. It is a great school, but not for everyone. If you think you need a large huge party school then this might not be for you.

    Pepperdine fosters a great sense of community. The school spirit is a little lacking. The activities they offer are great.

    Pepperdine is an amazing campus with an absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous view. I know I am getting a quality education here due to the fact that I have the greatest professors ever and the small class sizes are extremely convenient. The people here are all really kind and everyone seems to find a spot to fit in really quickly.
