Recent News, Events, and Resources



The University had to cancel or postpone any non-essential Pepperdine events with expected attendance of 100 or more through the end of March. Community members should be aware that further events may be canceled if the Los Angeles County Department of Health or another health agency mandates such action, or if University officials determine event cancellation is the best course of action given the totality of circumstances. Pepperdine community members and their families should consider travel plans for upcoming University events, including commencements, and plan accordingly. The University recommends considering the purchase of refundable ticketing options or travel insurance when appropriate.  Find updates here

Pepperdine's Wave Classic will be hosted at The Riviera Country Club's championship golf course located in Pacific Palisades, California on October 19, 20120. Owning a legendary place on the American golfing landscape, Riviera's famed George Thomas-designed golf course has hosted one U.S. Open, two PGA Championships and a U.S. Senior Open, in addition to serving as the perennial site of the PGA Tour's Northern Trust Open.  This exhilarating event has blessed Seaver College students and faculty with more than $2,000,000 in scholarship and program resources. The men's and women's golf teams have also been a generous beneficiary of this tournament's proceeds.

Our exciting day will consist of a tasty breakfast, barbeque lunch; contests will include a Golf "Warm-Up" Clinic, Longest Drive, closest to the pin and Putting Contest. The day will close with a silent auction.
