What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine is sort of hit or miss. In some aspects, the school is perfect; the ocean view, the small class sizes, security cars on campus 24/7, the beautiful campus and dedicated professors. While in other ways, there are things that could improve, such as implementing A/C in all on-campus housing, the small dorm room sizes, and more food options. If you're okay with letting some expectations and luxuries fall to the way side, and accepting Pepperdine for what it currently offers, then this university will be a good fit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The parties are hidden and strictly monitored, but they happen every weekend and are fairly large due; but you have to know people, be a girl, or be a celebrity to be let in. The academics are hard, so do not come here if you were looking to sleep in class on Monday morning after your weekend- you will easily fail that way. I never wasn’t doing something.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine University advertises itself as a Christian University and it can be if the student wants to have a Christian experience, but a student can also choose to solely focus on their education and personal life as well. There are plenty of opportunities of spiritual growth for an individual student and there are also plenty of opportunities to live the "party" lifestyle. One of the strongest factors of Pepperdine University is that the professors go above and beyond for the student body. They not only have an exceptional range of office hours, but I also have been to a professor's home as they walk with students and give guidance and wisdom beyond the classroom. The professors are not just exemplary professors, but exemplary human beings. It is a university that not only values high education, but also the student body that resides in it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Pepperdine because I fell in love with the campus and the feeling I got while being in Malibu at the university. Pepperdine gave me, so far, the best four years of my life and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. I made life long friends and was able to make two really solid relationships with my professors that will no doubt last a very long time. There is ample restaurants in Malibu if you're wanting a quick bite, but a car is crucial to get out on the weekends and see more than the small beach town. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick Pepperdine.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine University is great for those looking for a small school. The class sizes are great for getting to know your professor, but you can also get into a lecture general education class if you're looking to just get a class over with. I have to say that the food and housing are not my favorite parts of the campus, but the view and proximity to the beach make up for it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine University has much to take pride in: sunny beaches, attentive professors, small class sizes. I think that if you truly want to learn and have an immersive experience in the material, then your professors will definitely help you. They're always there for office hours so don't be shy to ask for help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine is a wonderful college that fosters a strong and welcoming community. Among my search for the college I would go on to attend, Pepperdine rose above the schools I had always dreamed of including the University of Southern California (which I was accepted to). Upon my visits, I was consistently welcomed with extraordinary positivity. At Pepperdine, you feel like you matter! Not to mention, the location is absolutely beautiful. It is a Christian college though so its not for students looking to party as it is alcohol and drug free. However, if a student is looking to strengthen their mind and spirit, there is no better place to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine University was never really on my radar, I never expected to attend there, I just applied since my uncle was a faculty member. When I got into the University of Southern California, I was so happy, but the tuition rate made me unable to attend. As I got a little scholarship money from Pepperdine, I was strongly urged to go there by my parents. I DID NOT enjoy it the first year, but the second year I studied abroad in Shanghai and that was life changing. I would definitely recommend Pepperdine for the study abroad, the food, and the weather; however, the students are not extremely racially diverse and there are a TON of GE's that other colleges don't require.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pepperdine University is a prestigious school in which we are diverse and very academically focused. There are outlets for those who love sports and enjoy being active, as well as those who thoroughly enjoy the art and music scene. The location is nothing short of astounding with close access to a multitude of beaches, grocery stores, shopping centers, and restaurants. The campus atmosphere is quaint and community-centered. Every walk to class is filled with smiles and many familiar faces. Overall it is a joyous little oasis.
