Student Handbook: University Section


The "Waves," Pepperdine University's nickname, dates back to the school's first basketball team in 1938-1939 season. Pepperdine University competes in 14 intercollegiate sports: men's basketball, baseball, tennis, volleyball, water polo, golf, and cross country, and women's basketball, tennis, volleyball, golf, swimming, cross country, and soccer. The majority of the men's and women's programs, in affiliation with Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, are members of the West Coast Conference. The water polo and men's volleyball teams are members of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, and the women's swimming team is a member of the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference.

Athletic Facilities

The Eddy D. Field Baseball Stadium, one of America's most beautiful intercollegiate parks, is used by the Waves baseball team.
The Raleigh Runnels Memorial Pool, adjacent to Firestone Fieldhouse, complemented by a 12-jet Jacuzzi, provides first-class water recreation facilities. It was the site of the 1984 Olympic competition in water polo.
There is not a bad seat in Firestone Fieldhouse, home for Pepperdine basketball and volleyball. The facility's acoustics and configuration provide a great homecourt advantage on game nights!
Weight Center
The university's weight room is located in the Fieldhouse and features Icarian workout equipment, plus a full line of free weights.
