Villanova University Class of 2013
Favorite Spot on Campus
The Scaife Bridge and Terrace behind the bookstore on main campus. It's quiet, peaceful, and has the best views of the Pacific Ocean!
Tips For Applying
Top 3 recommendations for applying
- Be yourself! You are uniquely you, so tailor your application to represent who you are rather than who you think Pepperdine University wants you to be.
- Have at least one person review your application. Attention to detail matters, so be sure to dot your "i's" and cross your "t's".
- Don't be a stranger! Reach out and connect with your admission counselor. We are here as a resource before, during, and after the application process.
Advice for essays and supplemental question
Tell your authentic story. From highs and lows, to how you responded—this is your chance to make your application come alive.
Other general advice
Applying to college is a two way street. Put yourself out there to learn more about an institution, but also make sure it's a positive fit for you. Pepperdine is a wonderful place to learn and grow, but do your research to make sure it fits where you've been, where you are, and where you're going with your faith, academics, and goals.
Working in the Office of Admission
My favorite aspect about working in the Office of Admission
What excites me most about working in the Office of Admission is meeting with prospective students, hearing their stories, and exploring how their unique gifts and talents can contribute to the Pepperdine community. Additionally, my favorite part about working in higher education is helping students find their purpose, being an advocate for higher education, and promoting a mindset of lifelong learning.
