Pepperdine Waves

Pepperdine boasts a one-of-a-kind athletic department with unprecedented success for a school of its size. The Waves have won NCAA Division I championships in five different men’s sports – one of just 16 schools to have accomplished this feat – and nine overall. Of this elite group, Pepperdine has the smallest enrollment and is the only school not associated with a "major" conference. The Waves earned the Division I-AAA All-Sports Trophy, an award based on postseason success that’s given to the top non-football school, for the third time in 2011-12. Located in scenic Malibu, Calif., the university overlooks the Pacific Ocean and its campus and athletic facilities are regularly voted among the nation’s most beautiful. Pepperdine, which is affiliated with the Church of Christ, ranks #57 overall on U.S. News and World Report’s list of America’s best colleges. #RollWaves
