Meant to provide opportunities to tour campus and form relationships, Year 2 Welcome was offered to second-year students in lieu of a New Student Orientation. With a costly price tag attached, some students share the realities of their unexpected experiences.
Year 2 Welcome
Pepperdine gives the sophomore class a proper welcome after a year of isolation. The Year 2 Welcome gives students an opportunity to bond and get familiar with campus.
Only about a third of Pepperdine’s rising sophomores will attend the Year 2 Welcome retreat, which begins Aug. 20. Parents cited the $1,500 price tag as an issue and petitioned the administration for an on-campus orientation for those students not attending the retreat.
