Wanted to get my son a Pepperdine shirt (he's in high school and that's his new "business trip" gift). Was worried I couldn't get into campus because of security but no issue. Nice bookstore and good sales.

We turned into this campus, not sure what to expect. The views from the top were amazing! The athletic facilities were most impressive. Cannot imagine how one can study here without total distraction! Nice place to stop and visit.

Pepperdine is a landmark. It is absolutely gorgeous. So peaceful there looking out at the ocean below and seeing all the rolling green hills. The deer come out on the hills and it is a surreal experience. If you've never been, you should go.

How could you possibly study with such beautiful views to take your mind off studying. A wonderful campus, worth a visit...

It's a super setting and if I had seen I would have gone there myself just for the views. Take the drive for a few minutes. It's free and it's great.

The university is a first class place with first class people at the helm. We stayed on campus and really had a feel for what kind of place this is. Everyone we met with was so hospitable, so genuinely interested in making sure we enjoyed our visit. I hope to send my daughters to college at this wonderful institution.

Fist things first: this place is dead on campus and there is no food to buy on campus. I recommend this place to everyone because at the top of the hill next to the University Hotel/Conference Center is a Hero Memorial for September 11th. This is very small memorial but nice with water. Also, this provides the perfect vantage point... More

Dive to the top of the campus and you get one of the best views of Malibu and I hear they provide a decent education here, too.

Went for an art show. Walked the campus. At the top the view of the Pacific Ocean on a clear day is spectacular.

It is a beautiful sight even if you're just driving by. We passed by everyday and drove through once. You cant miss it.
