    This is a school with several opportunities to discover what you are interested in and who you want to be. The small class sizes allow a more personal relationship with your classmates and professors and enhance the learning experience. The view continually amazes me.

    Pepperdine is a small, community based Christian school that truly cares about your experience. The academic rigor, opportunities and small class sizes make it a highly accredited university. The location in Malibu is secluded, but close enough to Santa Monica and LA for ample job and internship opportunities.

    Great CC for anyone who doesn't know what they want to do/ can't afford to enroll in a university right out of high school. If you do the work and respect your professors, you'll do well. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH ON MAJORS, TRANSFER SCHOOLS, ETC, because the counselors don't always seem to know what they're doing.

    Pepperdine University is a place for students who really want to make the most out of their college experience. The campus is absolutely phenomenal, the people are incredibly nice and most of all, the academics are challenging. However, Pepperdine really does prepare for the real world whether it be the business world, medical world or any career path you really want to pursue.

    I feel I am being called to attend Pepperdine. The student:teacher ratio is small which enhances academic excellence. The campus is stunning with great housing, excellent extracurricular activities and an unfaltering religious focus.

    Pepperdine University is an odd school that's at once religious and secular, academic and close-minded, conservative and rowdy. Christian worship and ministry opportunities are prevalent on campus but there's also a sizable percentage of the student body which doesn't identify with any faith or holds more liberal views on social issues. Overall Pepperdine is an ever surprising and mostly cordial melting pot of nationalities, states, backgrounds, and creeds that offers a wide array of extracurricular activities and areas of study in one of the most beautiful locales of Southern California.
