Pepperdine University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
Pepperdine has small classes and dedicated professors.
The campus is obviously beautiful, but I think the best thing the school has to offer is the faculty. The majority of the professors are truly excellent and interested in their students as individuals -- if you put yourself out there, they will help tend to your intellectual and personal growth. The school also has a big emphasis on service and social justice, finding not just a job after school but a vocation. The obvious downside is the cost -- I have no idea how I will pay off my debt, despite all my financial aid. Another thing to consider is the school's big emphasis on religion/spirituality -- it's a big upside for some people, but if you're not into it then it could be a downside for you. It's also not a school I would want to go to if I were gay.
Pepperdine is a great school, and the Spanish program is 5. The location is beautiful, of course, which is awesome. Unlike a lot of small liberal arts colleges, a degree from Pepperdine means something. They are serious about academics there. Faith is also a part of the university's life, but they don't shove it down your throat if you aren't religious.
