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

While visiting the L.A. area with family, we spent a day in Malibu. We drove through the Pepperdine campus, because my wife and I wanted our kids (who will be deciding on colleges in the next few years) to see it. We visited during the week between Christmas and New Year, so there was really no activity on campus, but... More

While visiting Southern California, my wife and I stopped by and visited Pepperdine University, and what a wise decision ... WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE! ... With the outstanding views of the Pacific Ocean, I would think it would be difficult to study and concentrate ... Well worth a visit to experience this unique university ... Truly a special place to... More

We visited the Campus Oct 2014 while we were in LA. The views were amazing... the grounds had deer roaming, and best of all, free to go up. It is a school, so be respectful.

As an alumni, I am the first to admit I am incredibly biased, I love Pepperdine! The time I spent earning my undergraduate degree was one of the best spans of time in my life. I will proudly tell anyone where I went to school and how amazing was the entire experience. From the quality of education, to the safe... More

During our recent trip, we took a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu. Saw the signs to Pepperdine University and turned in to take a drive around. It is absolutely beautiful. It's worth the visit to see it, the views, the grounds and the beautiful university. Those have to be the most in shape students in the country!... More

Although I rated Pepperdine all fives, I definitely have mixed feelings about it. The campus is beautiful, it has a wonderful and uncrowded law library, and the views are unparalleled. But it is the home to some of the most reactionary and bigoted thinking in Southern California. Appearances are at times deceiving.

Absolutely amazing views overlooking the Pacific Ocean everywhere on this campus. The campus grounds are also perfectly manicured and beautifully maintained. We stop here when in Malibu to visit the bookstore and pickup gifts for alumni friends and family. I have no idea how anyone graduates and leaves this place. If you're traveling with kids, there is a wonderful park... More
