Pepperdine University by the Sea
Beautiful Seaside College for Our Private Tour Guests to Visit
Many of our guests visiting Southern California and enjoying a private tour of Los Angeles will ask that we drive onto the campus when we get near Pepperdine University in Malibu. The school was founded by George Pepperdine who started Western Auto Supply Company with $5 in 1909. The original campus was in South Central Los Angeles. The school has occupied a steep hillside overlooking the Santa Monica Bay since 1972 and is certainly one of the most beautiful spots in California. There are times during the year when we have families with young people considering college in the Los Angeles area and are always pleased for the chance to drive up into the campus to show them what they will see every day on their way to class. The school offers undergraduate degrees in a considerable number of majors as well as graduate degrees in law, public policy, education, psychology and business administration. Pepperdine’s Christian ethos supports a strong spiritual element in its students’ university life and imparts a sense of service and responsibility to its graduates. When we tour with families visiting their children at Pepperdine we are always impressed with their knowledge and commitment to their studies. Even more, how much they love living in Malibu and being so close to Los Angeles.
