Pepperdine is not for everybody. It has a strong Christian background, and you are required to go to chapel 14 times a semester (roughly once a week), and to take three religious GEs. It is also a "dry" campus (which means if you want to drink you need to be good at hiding it because you can get in serious trouble), and you cannot be in the dorms of the opposite sex after 1am. If you cannot handle these types of rules, you should look elsewhere.

However, there are tons of great opportunities. Students are very socially conscious, and there are always tons of opportunities to volunteer and get involved in global-scale movements to help people. International programs can let you spend a year in many other countries and the DC program lets you have an internship there while still taking classes. Most of all, the professors are incredibly student-focused. They are not only extremely passionate and knowledgeable, but almost all of them are willing to go out of their way to help you understand the material. It is a great school for thinkers!
