Pepperdine’s campus, located in Malibu, overlooks the Pacific Ocean. It’s a gorgeous campus and tempting for anyone who wants a beach experience. But this is not a college with a laid-back beach vibe. This is a deeply Christian school that just happens to be on a beach.
We had heard that Pepperdine is a conservative and religious college, but we didn’t realize that students there are required to take three religion classes and that the point of the curriculum is to deepen your faith relationship through your college experience.
We did meet students who were Catholic so while this is not necessarily a Catholic school, anyone who worships at a church of Christ would feel comfortable here though this school has a more Protestant born-again vibe.
Fans of the TV show Zoe 101 will enjoy finding the various spots at Pepperdine featured on the show.
