Everyone needs to go see this campus. It's location is amazing. Nestled on the rolling hills of Malibu with a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean. It would be difficult for me to focus on studying. The campus itself is clean and beautiful and the views are breathtaking.

Pepperdine University has the most beautiful campus I have ever visited. You walk out of any building, look to the west, and you are seeing the Pacific Ocean.

The view that this campus had are incredible. I don't know how they can get the studies in. What a way this would be to spend 4 years of your life. The view off of the Law School was the best.

If you have not taken an hour or two to walk the Pepperdine grounds while in Malibu: you need to do it. Pepperdine has the best property in Malibu. The BEST. When you drive up to the guard shack, just tell them you want to visit. They are very nice. You can walk all over the campus, their amazing pools,... More

We came to Pepperdine for the prospective student information session and tour. The campus is very modern and beautiful with a fantastic view of the ocean. Even though they have a lot of visitors at the information sessions and tours, they're genuine interest in prospective students as individuals came across.

Beautiful campus and awesome views. Not good for walking as it is hilly but so peaceful and scenic. When we entered the campus a family of deers were crossing the street. That helped to set the stage for the natural beauty we experienced.
