About Us

Campus Recreation is an office within the Student Affairs division of Seaver College. Campus Recreation provides a wide range of facilities and community-building programs that equip the Pepperdine community to excel in academics, care for the body, and carry out acts of service.

Our Mission

Campus Recreation is dedicated to enriching the Pepperdine community by offering high-quality, diverse, and safe programs, services and facilities that encourage healthy, active, and balanced lifestyles.

We are committed to the development and education of the whole person (mind, body, and spirit) by fostering intellectual and leadership growth, promoting lifelong healthy behaviors, and enhancing self-esteem and spiritual awareness. The Department of Campus Recreation is committed to the mission of Pepperdine University to strengthen students for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.

Student Learning

Much of student learning also takes place outside of the classroom. A student who participates in Campus Recreation activities will be able to:

  • Practice healthy behavior in community with a diverse group of people, realizing the exercise benefits in cognitive, physical, social and spiritual domains.
  • Understand the importance of team play, teamwork, and healthy social interactions in sports competition and beyond.
  • Make purposeful decisions regarding the balance of education, work, and leisure time.
  • Integrate faith with recreational activities through community and outdoor experiences that show an appreciation of the body and nature as God's creation.
