Kendall Deranek
Kendall Deranek (JD ‘21)

Former President, SELS

“I got involved with the Sports and Entertainment Law Society (SELS) because I wanted to help students learn about the entertainment industry and provide opportunities for them to meet industry professionals and each other. I’ve loved serving as president and working with Professor Weston and the rest of the board to plan events and activities.”

Former Copresident, PEMSS

“Being on the board of the Pepperdine Entertainment, Media, and Sports Society has offered me access that no other network or club could provide. I’m glad I made the decision to be an officer and work with Professor Granados and the many industry insiders with whom I’ve created long-lasting relationships.”

My main goal was to illustrate to members the many career opportunities available to them after graduation, and I am very grateful for Professor Jessop’s help and guidance.”



  Television Studio

With four Sony High Definition cameras, a Sony switcher, and a Yamaha digital mixing console, the Seaver College Communication Division television studio is comparable to a medium or large market broadcast newsroom. Student directors follow the action on three 52-inch Sony monitors.
