Join the Pepperdine University Family for the Closing Ceremony of Our Historic 75th Anniversary Year!

Seventy-five years ago this September, on a sunny afternoon that chased away the clouds of the Great Depression, Christian businessman George Pepperdine opened a brand new college at 79th and Vermont in Los Angeles, investing his fortune and faith in the promise of a life-changing education.

Celebrate with us this September as we commemorate our historic 2012 Founder's Day. Join our audience of loyal alumni, devoted board members, friends, faculty, staff, and the next generation of Pepperdine Waves who honor our founder's motto, "Freely ye received, freely give" (Matthew 10:8).

Pepperdine is 75, our celebration is September 19, and the future is bright with promise!
