"I remember my first week during New Student Orientation and being overwhelmed by the excitement of complete strangers who were so eager to welcome me to the Pepperdine community. I soon discovered what a culturally diverse place Pepperdine is, where students embrace and celebrate differences. As an international student I have found close friends who love and enjoy my company despite our differences in cultural upbringing, opinions, interests, and hobbies. Overall the Pepperdine community, especially my fraternity, has given me a new found sense of belonging, making me feel like part of a large family that is constantly growing and evolving over time."
