My school is best known for its commitment to Christianity. While it is a very conservative Church of Christ school, where three religion classes are required of all students, it is also a very religiously tolerant institution. Pepperdine is most appropriately known for having Christian values and ideals, such as service to others, which the institution does its best to uphold. Other denominations of Christianity are more than welcomed here, and while non-Christians may feel more out of place with the emphasis on Christian ideals, there is a policy of religious tolerance which is enforced always.

My school is best known for its religious affiliation. Pepperdine is Church of Christ, and that attracts a stereotyped view of the average student here, of which I personally do not fall into. The average Pepperdine student is white, Republican, and of the wealthy class in America. Because my school is known for this, people with a liberal perspective tend to shy away from it because the students seem to be less relatable and more closed off to anyone outside of their societal niche.

Pepperdine University is a beautiful school inside and out. I love, in every, what they stand for. Their beauty might be what some people say makes Pepperdine stick out, but for me it's their morals. They stand for strengthening lives for purpose and leaderships, and that is what makes them stand out for me. With the help of this scholarship I believe that I'll be able to attend this university in the fall, and in the process be able to enjoy their beauty first hand.

Pepperdine is most well known for two different things: exclusiveness and christian conservatism. Both of which are fairly true. Compared to other christian schools, Pepperdine would definately be considered liberal, which I like. However, if you were to compare it to a state school, it would be considered more conservative. And, yes, Pepperdine is pretty exclusive. If you want to come here, you have to be prepared and work at having an attractive resume/application.

My school is best known for its strong Christian morals, solid academics, and amazing study abroad program. The students and faculty are strong in their faith, but accepting of all types of people. It is a school where students of diverse backgrounds can come together as one student body, a school where students have the opportunity to study in a new and amazing place sophomore year, and a school where academics are valued very highly.

Pepperdine Univerisity is well renowned for its beautiful view, as it is situated right by the Pacific Ocean. There's an amazing sunset each day for students to enjoy while going to and from classes. On Valentine's Day, I gave directions to an old married couple looking for our cafeteria; they were planning a romantic lunch with a breathtaking view.

Pepperdine University is probably know for its awesome and beautiful location perched on the cliffs above the pacific coast highway about 30 minutes north of Los Angeles in beautiful Malibu. Practically on top of the beach you are near some of the nicest beaches in all of america, and who knows you might even see a celebrity on campus.
