Yes, it looks just like the postcard. Faculty and staff go the extra mile and genuinely want to help. The motto states that Pepperdine's mission is to strengthen students for lives of service, purpose, and leadership. Its motto (visible everywhere) is "Freely ye have received, freely give." The Heroes Garden (9/11 Memorial) at the Drescher Campus (Business Grad school) here... More

First time at Pepperdine May 2015. LOVED the Campus and the view of each morning of waking up to the view of the ocean. Not sure I enjoyed the so many levels of up and down stairs to get to one place or the other. but loved everything

We drove around the campus. It is one of the most beautiful campus that I have seen, build on a long. I don't know if the level of the studies at this university is very high, and what students go there. But the students must enjoy a great time there. It takes about 60 minutes to drive there from Santa... More

the answer to the title above is a resounding, "NO!" Hands-down the most beautiful campus you'll ever visit in your life. I've spent a year here and the views never get old, the drive to campus through Malibu Canyon (a CA scenic highway) never bores, and who can complain about being so close to the beach, the metropolis and all...

Pepperdine has a view that is unbelievable, and a degree focus that considers the spiritual part of your child in addition to the academic and social parts that other colleges address. Our eighth college to visit- and it really stood out for more than just the location.

We attended church on Pepperdine's campus in Elkin's Auditorium. It was a very pleasant experience. Dare I review the sermon? Yep. It was Aussie awesome! The campus has so much natural beauty and a sparking out door pool.

I want to be a student again and go to this most stunning and prestigious university. You must tour this place and go to the bookstore to secure and purchase some nice memorabilia.

Not having much time, my husband and I wanted to make a quick drive through the University campus to see the grounds and views of the ocean. It was very pretty. The guard at the gate was very friendly and helpful. Nice place to go.
