Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Pepperdine University Malibu California
Pepperdine University s 830 acre main Malibu campus which first welcomed budding scholars in 1972 is located in a beautiful hillside setting right next to the Pacific Ocean. Depending on their vantage point, students at this Churches of Christ affiliated research university can see Los Angles, Catalina Island or the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The campus attractively re imagined Mediterranean Revival style features prominent use of stucco and roofs with red tiling. This approach was the work of noted American architect William Pereira, who used it to accentuate Pepperdine s ocean side location. One of the college s most notable features is the Phillips Theme Tower, a 125 foot edifice that was built in 1973 and stands as a sign of the university s Christian ethos.
