  • My sister went here for her degree in Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Studies. The show Zoey 101 was filmed here (on the show, it was called Pacific Coast Academy). Pepperdine has a very beautiful graduation ceremony; a pretty view of the Pacific Ocean. The campus is overall built on very steep mountain, so good luck on getting to your classes by walking.
  • On September 11 every year the main lawn adjacent to PCH is adorned with thousands of flags. Each flag representing a person that died on 911. It’s truly beautiful and moving. It’s a great photo opportunity through the flags looking towards the Pacific Ocean. Go near sunset.
