Pepperdine University Reviews
It has been a wonderful experience. All of the classes get you engaged in the material. I’ve learned so much this past few semesters. Once you attend a few classes you become such a close knit community with your peers. Everyone is helping each other succeed. It is an opportunity for personal and academic growth. The campuses all around Malibu, Encino and West LA are all beautiful. The Malibu campus has an exceptional view! You can study or eat and look out for the breathtaking view of the ocean and sunlight.
You’re overall you’re academic experience is wonderful. Pepperdine upholds really great Christian values that coincides with my religious beliefs.
I was lucky when I found Pepperdine University. I was recently graduated from Sacramento State with no plans as COVID-19 spread world wide. My life practically stopped but with Pepperdine University I was able to continue to grow and develop skills to reached my academic and career goals. My last semester at Sacramento State, half way through became fully online which allowed me the opportunity to learn that I can excel online, which gave me the courage to apply to a fully online program. Blessed for this opportunity
