Golden Circle

There is a special group of Pepperdine alumni that consists of those who have reached an impressive milestone in their lives as Waves. Specifically, they have celebrated 50 years of being a Pepperdine alumnus. These alumni—many of whom are our most spirited—have earned their place in what is known as the “Golden Circle.”
