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.

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.

Beautifully scenic campus overlooking the Pacific ocean. The grounds and facilities make this campus a great stop and the school itself is top-notch.
