"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."

"Hello, potential new transfers! I can't wait to assist all of you. I hope to help you in your transfer process, adjust to Pepperdine life, and make this special place your home.
More about me: I'm from Simi Valley, California which is about 40 minutes away from our campus. I went to Moorpark Community College for two years before transferring to Pepperdine my junior year. I'm now a senior and I work on campus in the Career Center as a Marketing Assistant. I love hiking, going to the beach, and taking long walks through Target.
One piece of advice I have for you at Pepperdine is to get involved in as many things as possible. Coming in as a transfer student, I felt that I did not have as much time to embrace the opportunities that Pepperdine has to offer. You should really jump in and get involved as soon as possible. Join clubs, get a job on campus, or attend as many events as you can!"
