"I chose Pepperdine because I always felt it was the perfect environment in which
I could thrive. I felt that the prestige of the school, along with its faith-oriented
background and tight-knit community would not only allow me to meet people that would
change my life now, but maybe even more importantly, impact my future for the better."
"I knew Pepperdine was the place for me the first time I stepped on campus. The warm
welcome I received from other students, faculty, and staff immediately made me feel
at home. The small class sizes combined with the many opportunities provided at Pepperdine
solidified my decision to become a Wave!"
"I chose Pepperdine because I love the small classroom sizes that allow me to develop
relationships with my professors and classmates. I felt confident that Pepperdine
would provide me with opportunities that would guide me to be successful after graduation."
"I chose Pepperdine for its prestigious communication division and challenging academics."
"I have been the Student Affairs Intern (SAI) since the fall of 2018 and I am so happy
to help people build lasting connections. It makes my work here at Pepperdine more
rewarding and impactful because I know I have been a resource."
"I chose Pepperdine because of its distance from home, which is the Bay Area for me.
It's far enough, but also close enough and it provides me with a sense of independence
that I desired with the reassurance that my family is nearby if I need them."
"I chose Pepperdine because of the beautiful location and size of the school; It was
just the right fit for me. I also wanted to challenge myself academically in their
renowned Psychology program."
"I chose Pepperdine because of the excellent academic programs it offers in a small
community setting. No school can top the amazing location of Pepperdine in the heart
"I came to Pepperdine looking for more. I wanted to learn and better myself in a deliberate
manner. Pepperdine is certainly smaller and a bit quieter than many other universities,
but never have I felt more enabled and supported to grow."
"I chose Pepperdine for the location and size along with the Christian based atmosphere."
"I came to Pepperdine because it is an incredible place of faith and education. There
is simply no other school or community like it."
"I came to Pepperdine for the outstanding sports medicine program and the opportunity
to work as a SAMI (the student athletic medicine intern). It gives me the ability
to apply what I'm learning now and is great practice for my future career as a physical
therapist working with athletes."
