  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I would definitely research colleges in the summer of and throughout junior year, so that you have some time to mull on it the summer before senior year. That way, you can narrow down the list of potential colleges and focus on application, scholarships, the works. Reach out to admissions officers with any questions and try to visit! Virtual tours can provide some information, but it's best to see the campus in person, rather than on your computer screen. Best of luck!

    I have recently been researching Pepperdine and am very interested in the school. I want to know from current students, how has your experience been? Is the school quite diverse? How is the location and what can you do for fun around the area? Is the school good for medicine?

    Come to Pepperdine!!!! The most important tip I'd say would be learning how to manage your time. I CANNOT stress that enough! There are so many activities that you'll want to pursue, but always remember that academics come first. However, make sure to be involved on campus too! There is always something to do whether it be free IN-N-Out at alumni park (NSO), a fun beach day or club activities, there's tons of fun things to do! That being said, Pepperdine is an amazing campus and I absolutely do not regret choosing this wonderful place for my college career.
