Founder's Day 2022

This fall marks two significant milestones for Pepperdine University: the 85th anniversary of the University welcoming its first class of students and the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Malibu campus. At this year's Founder's Day celebration, we will commemorate both of these anniversaries—and the values of service, faith, leadership, belonging, and unity upon which George Pepperdine founded his namesake institution.

Join us for an uplifting program with new and old traditions incorporated into this year's program. There will be joyful music performed by Pepperdine's Wind Ensemble and Concert Choir, remarks from students and president Jim Gash, lantern lighting, and reading of George Pepperdine's original dedicatory address given on September 21, 1937. A reception will immediately follow on the plaza outside Firestone Fieldhouse.
