Year 2 Welcome

Each August in Malibu, Pepperdine welcomes an incoming class of freshmen with great joy and celebration at New Student Orientation (NSO). NSO is a dynamic experience in which students bond with one another while learning about what their lives will be like at Seaver College. It is a time-honored Pepperdine tradition that many in our Wave community—including students, parents, and alumni alike—will attest to having made the most lasting impression on them.

Because of COVID-related restrictions this past academic year (fall 2020 and spring 2021), incoming students could not join us on campus. For most of them, the upcoming fall semester will be their very first experience on our Malibu campus. For that reason, we are excited to offer our sophomore and transfer students and their family members an exceptional Year 2 Experience where they will be welcomed with waves of hospitality. At the same time, they will develop friendships, form a class identity, and become acquainted with the many campus resources Pepperdine offers. The cost for each student to attend is $1,500 for the week-long program.

We invite you to invest in our Pepperdine’s Class of 2025 by supporting those students who are unable to afford the cost for the week. By giving to the Year Two Fund, you can help ensure that every member of the class has an opportunity to attend—helping them bounce back from a year of challenge and uncertainty by starting off their campus experience with a joyous, fulfilling, and utterly unforgettable Pepperdine welcome.
