Attended law school graduation. The campus and setting on the bluffs overlooking Malibu and the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking. Campus is very well maintained with green spaces and pathways between the different levels of campus.

I know Pepperdine is world renowned for education but you have to be on campus to see why so many would pay a premium to stay here. The school overlooks the Pacific Ocean and can be seen from almost anywhere on campus. The people are friendly, helpful, informative. From the security guards at the gates all the way to the...

This is easily one of the coolest college campuses I've ever visited - and I've been to many. Built into the Malibu cliffs overlooking the ocean. Hard to beat. Very well cared for facilities. Wonderful weather. Good people everywhere. What's not to love?! I was here for a conference and didn't want to leave. Well worth a visit. Navy and... More

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.
