5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a saying about Pepperdine " you haven't seen fine 'til you've seen Pepperdine" that refers to the gorgeous campus and its gorgeous students. Everyone is fashionable and friendly. Walking around campus is like walking through a Urban Outfitters catalog. People are chill and there are so many cute guys, and most of them are looking for the girl they will marry. Meeting people is fun and easy at Pepperdine.

Guys & Girls: Students at Pepperdine are excellent individuals: smart, talented, ambitious. The only problem is that most people aren't into the dating scene. It's virtually nonexistent.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys are attractive, but usually taken, gay, or douches. Girls are pretty, usually in sororities or involved on campus in other ways. Way more girls than guys on campus, which creates competition for friendships and relationships with those of the opposite gender.

Students appear united in their opinions on the "guys and girls" issue. To sum up the quotes, as well as the general opinion on campus: (a) the girls are hot, (b) so are the guys, but (c) a lot of them are gay, and (d) no one dates. Students tend to conform, in terms of style and personality, and walking around Pepperdine is a little like watching a movie or attending a fashion show. Tight clothing and high heels predominate, and accessories bearing the names of venerable fashion avatars are a mainstay. Not to be outdone, even male students tote their books around in Coach and Louis Vuitton bags. Incidentally, such metrosexual behavior, along with the conservative environment that discourages explicit references to one's preferences, makes it hard to tell who's gay and who's not. Regardless, most students maintain that the gay population at Pepperdine is extraordinarily high.

Good luck, dear reader, finding a more attractive campus than Pepperdine's undergraduate school, Seaver College. The girls are otherworldly, and the guys, well, most of them look pretty good, too. What's more, some of these young men and women have personalities and are even pleasant to talk to! For what more could one ask?

Social Scene
Most students seem resigned to Pepperdine's bleak social scene. While many profess interest in dating, a startlingly high percentage of students have long-distance or off-campus relationships. The socially liberal crowd connects through off-campus parties and the Greek system, while more reserved students instant-message their high school sweethearts.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both are present, though commitment is far more commonplace. The university itself presents an intimidating front against casual dating; programs such as "Relationship IQ" extol the virtues of marriage and commitment and discourage hookups. Pepperdine girls seem content to chase the coveted "ring by spring;" engagement by their senior year. Guys who date often do so in the context of a committed relationship. Hookups happen, but girls tend to tread more carefully around such encounters as they might at a larger university because of the notorious "Peppervine" that makes the average high school rumor mill seem merciful and discreet.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
In the cafeteria or the HAWC.
Dress Code
Girls: Whether you're headed to a sorority mixer, a prayer meeting, or an 8 a.m. class-come rain or shine-don't forget your short skirt, heels, fancy purse, makeup, and eye glitter. Guys: Go for surfer casual, spendy-trendy casual, or go metro chic.
