Pepperdine lies directly above the cliffs of Malibu, with campus spread out over the hillsides. There are steep walks between the buildings, as nothing here is flat. Everything is buildt in the same modern, light style and colour uniting all the various buildings, classrooms and doorms into one. Lucky are the students that get to go to such a beautiful... More

We drove to Pepperdine from San Diego, so absolutely loved the peaceful, serene campus after a few hours of California traffic. We were as impressed with the academics, as much as we were with the breathtaking views and buildings.

Enjoyed walking around the campus and the store. Wonderful views and grounds. Very open, beautiful facilities. Seems like it would be a great place to go to school. Free parking as a visitor.

Though I did not get an opportunity to be on the campus. However passing right beside it made me envy the people who study there. Will allow you to be at peace and calm with a view so scenic

Pepperdine has it all - a can't be topped Malibu location, scenic views of the coastline and a growing positive reputation. Drive the campus, walk the expansive lawn and enjoy being in Malibu.

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
