My daughter and I came here for a one day visit. We didn't have much time but the professors did a wonderful job packing in a full schedule for us. The campus is absolutely gorgeous! We felt very welcomed. The students seem really happy there. Of course, who wouldn't?! The campus sits on a mountain/hill overlooking the ocean.

If you are Malibu you owe it to yourself to drive onto the campus to see the views of the campus stretching below you and the ocean beyond that. The campus is sprawling and green (recycled water keeps it that way year round). Drive up to the graduate housing are and stop along the road for a view of the... More

I can't speak to the quality of education that you get at Pepperdine, but I can speak to the fact that it has one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. We did a drive thru of the campus and loved it.

Drove entire campus, walked some too. Views are spectacular. Breath taking. School is private and not for the normal student. Study and get great grades or you are in for tough go. Good luck to any lucky enough to get admitted.

You have to go visit the campus for the view of anything! Campus tours are free and it's really an astonishing view of the ocean.

Pepperdine is right off PCH and the guard will let you in to drive around. The first parking lot on the right provides an excellent view for pictures.

Our host attended law school at Pepperdine and she provided the tour. It is a large place. Be sure to go up to the highest point for a good view of the school.

This place is so beautiful, I wonder how anyone ever gets any studying done. I'd just sit and admire the views -- of the mountains, the ocean, the beach and all the BPs on campus!
