I cannot believe those positive comments and advice messages that were posted for Pepperdine. They sound as if someone in the Pepperdine administration had a few free minutes on their hands (as many do) and decided to put up some pro-Pep propoganda on the Internet. Pepperdine is a "university" that is made up of rigid, overly-exclusive groups of people. Most are arrogant while a few are simply unhumanly shy. Close-minded is a better euphemism for the students rather than barely-minded. The academic standards are a joke and the student body's inclination toward academic scholarship is zero to none. The stereotype that Pepperdine is a university with a bunch of rich kids who do not care about grades and are simply going to take over their parents' businesses after grduation is not too far from the truth. The administration spends the outrgeous tuition fees disproportionately and does not care about student feedback. The president makes over $250,000 annually while the main library is archaic by all standards. Racism and religious discrimination are underlying problems that are implicit in the student culture. The term "dumb blonde" finds meaning most appropriately here in Malibu at Pepperdine. Finally, the university monopolizes the food options, leaving students with high-priced low-quality food. Recommendation for California residents: Avoid Pepperdine and stick to a public university even if you have to attend a junior college for one or two years first!
