Seaver Parents: Get Involved

Pepperdine parents with students

There are many opportunities to become involved in Seaver Parents Council through its various committees and volunteer opportunities.  We hope you will be involved and volunteer with the committee that best fits your interests.

Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Host fellow parents for a relaxing morning of coffee and conversation on either Saturday, September 29 or Sunday, September 30, 2018 at your local coffee shop. Share stories and meet other Pepperdine parents who are also navigating the college journey in a casual setting. Coffees will be held in coffee shops nationwide!  BYOC (Buy your own coffee!)  Locations coming soon! 

If you are interested in hosting a local coffee near you, please contact Christine Galvin at or (310)506-6334.  Looking forward to hosting with you soon!

We are looking for amazing parent volunteers to help us greet and answer questions from potential students and their parents at the 2018 Fall Regional Information Sessions across the country!

The goal of these events was to promote Pepperdine University to potential students and their parents deciding whether to attend Pepperdine next year by sharing your experiences with these prospective families!  Parents served as University ambassadors to greet and inform students and their families. These receptions will be hosted in cities nationwide by the Office of Admissions with the assistance of the Seaver Parents Council.  Look for a location near you and... GET INVOLVED!  Registration links coming soon!

Adoptive Parents Wanted...Adopt-A-Dorm is a program to enhance freshman, first-year, and transfer students'
learning, living, and community experiences both inside and outside the dorm.
Adoptive parents will be dedicated to helping the Housing and Residence Life (HRL)
Staff group comprised of Residential Advisors, Spiritual Life Advisors, and the
Residential Director, better meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the
students in their residence hall (dorm). Adoptive parents will bless students and
the HRL staff group by assisting, donating, organizing, praying and treating
their adopted dorm during the academic months of August to April.  Parents close
by or far away are welcome to adopt.  For more information, please email
