Celebrate as a #GraziadioGrad

A picture is worth a thousand words and forever cements some of life’s best memories. Make your #GraziadioGrad celebration one to remember by capturing the moment at some of our iconic Pepperdine spots. 

Need some #inspo? Here’s where you can showcase your Wave spirit:

  • Alumni Park: wide-open space and home of the renowned Pepperdine University concrete sign. This is where commencement will be held, so be sure to make a quick stop on your way to the stage.   
  • Heroes Garden: Let’s talk about some #views. Get that 360-degree ocean vista from the top of Drescher, where you can smile against the backdrop of a lifetime. 
  • Front of the Drescher Building: All stairs lead to Drescher (literally...we’re at the very top)—and the ones in front of our graduate campus come with palm trees, the George Graziadio fountain, and a beautiful courtyard where you can reminisce on the memories. 
  • Outside the Chapel: Mosaics and blue skies—what more could you ask for? Grab a shot in front of the colorful Pepperdine Chapel windows, a campus-wide staple.

Where ever you choose, be sure to include #GraziadioGrad and share how you captured the perfect Pepperdine pic on your commencement day.
