"I decided to attend Pepperdine for the opportunity to expand my knowledge of the world, while carrying my faith alongside me. The Malibu campus is beyond anything I could ever imagine. My classrooms in the Psychology department are small, which allows for students to network with professors and reach their full potential. I am confident that Pepperdine will prepare me for my future studies"

"Hey, Transfer Waves! I'm so happy to welcome you to Pepperdine! I know the hard work that goes into transferring to a new school, so I want to congratulate you on your success.

Since I started at Pepperdine in the Fall of 2019, I have learned that Pepperdine offers so much more than just an academic experience. First of all, Malibu is beyond beautiful; you will be sure to love the ocean views as much as I do. Most importantly, the transfer alliance that we have is a great resource. From personal experience, I can say that Pepperdine supports every single one of their students.

If there's any advice that I should give, I'd encourage you to challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and see what Pepperdine has to offer you. With the many different ways you can get involved on campus in clubs and organizations, I can promise that you will meet amazing people and expand your views of the world from a wider angle.

Having this opportunity to welcome you to Pepperdine brings me joy. I'd love to personally meet all of you, so feel free to reach out to me at any point. Whether it's at the Payson Library or on Zoom, I'd love to meet for coffee and get to know each other!"
