This is an amazingly lovely campus and also has many interesting entertainment, arts and education programs for non-students. It's an expensive, competitive private University but you can visit the campus, go to a show... More

If you have... More

This is great school. It's very competitive to get in as we know. But the kids who get in are especially respectful and engaged. Whoever is in charge of their admissions process is doing a great job. We have lived in Malibu for many years and whenever our paths have crossed with the Pepperdine students we have always been impressed... More

I wish I when to school here! The campus is small but beautiful. Take the time to drive to the top of the campus hill where the graduate housing is located. When you get to the top it has the best view of Malibu beach.

Worth a visit at the time of the annual September 11th Remembrance Display. Moving display that is remarkable during the day and even more moving at sunset. The view to the Pacific Ocean is breathtaking.

We stopped here to view the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art. The museum is free. We visited on a Saturday. You stop at the guard gate. Parking was easy on a Saturday. The museum has works of Art by modern artists.
