Are you extremely liberal? Are you adamantly opposed to anything having to do with religion? Then Pepperdine is not the school for you! Look in the mission statement, it clearly states that Pepperdine is a Christian school that ardently searches for truth in each branch of knowledge through a faith-based perspective. Yes, we have a lot of rich, spoiled kids, but what outstanding university doesn't? The fact that their parents are pushing them towards this university says alot about the institution. And while a few are snooty, there are alot of sincere, driven people on campus. Those who are lucky enough to get into Pepperdine—and I do mean lucky, 1600's and 4.3's mean nothing to Pepperdine; they actually have turned numbers like these away—have the chance to intimatley interact with their professors, who are all recognized in their field. Look at the usnews report, do you find any Christian Colleges in the top tier? No!!! That is because Pepperdine is the BEST CHRISTIAN university in the NATION! Yeah, you will find some Catholic and Mormon universities, but not Christian. This fact was the key factor that pushed me towards Pepperdine. Not only is Pepperdine a premier institution, but it is also one of the most beautiful schools in the nation. Unlike the East Coast schools who are showered with rain Pepperdine is showered with sun rays in a beautiful coastal setting very conducive to the academic life. Minutes away from the beach, students have the unique opportunity to take their work down to the beach, surf, or just "power-sleep" before your next class. Though I was accepted into Harvard, Yale, Stanford…and several other Ivy Leagues, I choose Pepperdine because of not only its intimacy, or its beauty, but also because it allowed me to pursue my educational interests without having to be brainwashed by any liberal institution. Pepperdine has given me the chance to form my own opinions and beliefs. In doing this, Pepperdine has prepared me for life beyond college. I would never attend any other institution for my undergraduate work.

commentHey moron,

Catholic IS Christian

commentI second the first comment. The person who wrote this is a dumb-shit
commentYou both are ass hats. christians dont believe the bull shit catholics believe and they know who the five gospels are haha.
commentObviously the first three comments above me have no integrity or knowledge whatsoever. One, Catholicism is not Christianity, or to be more precise: Protestant. Protestantism does not follow the pope or the many Saints of Catholicism. We solely follow/believe in Jesus Christ and believe in the Holy Trinity. Second, your comments with your vulgar word choice is degrading and only makes yourselves a fool. Third, if you have a problem with Pepperdine. Don't go there! Simple as that.
commentIt would seem that all of you that have written here need to take some time to educate yourself on religion. If your religion believe in Christ then it is a Christian faith. If you want to be a well rounded person and be able to survive in the melting pot world we live in, you should know about others religions as well as your own. I raised a jewish daughter who went to a Catholic high school and is now get her Master today at Pepperdine. No one even asked her about her faith. She was there for an education not conversion.
