What the students are saying about:

Pepperdine University

Pepperdine University

Pepperdine University in sunny California is almost too good to be true with access to the beach and urban scenery. The campus is “located in the beautiful town of Malibu and there’s a great beach right across the street. Also it's only 15 minutes from LA, so on weekends you can have a wild fun time and on weekdays you’re back in a relaxed, calm environment where you can concentrate on your studies.” Another hot spot close to campus is “Malibu Yogurt, which is a two minute drive from campus, and is a really popular place to hang out with friends or go on a date.” It’s not just the beautiful Pacific Ocean that gets this school on the list either; they have “shopping centers in both Santa Monica and through the canyon. On campus, there are different activities throughout the year and they hold events like the ‘Spring Fling’ where you can stay up all night for free Disneyland tickets.” What it really boils down to is location near the beach and city. Many students agree, “Pepperdine is the most beautiful campus I have ever seen…LA isn’t far if that’s what you’re looking for and the beach is just a minute away.” Sounds like the perfect SoCal location.
