I am currently a freshman at Pepper Dine, and I'm double majoring in their national studies and political science. And I'm going to talk to you about white school and what I like about it. I chose the school because I knew I wanted to grow spiritually in college. So that's been a huge bonus, Pepper and has facilitated a fire and environment that cultivates here spiritually. Curiosity your relationship with God, I'm growing a lot. Even just within the first semester and a half, Uh, student body at the school is really like lean back. Chill. Everybody's really nice. What you would think is, like, never happens on a college campus. Everybody so stressed out. But no matter how stressed out your friends are, they're always gonna be there for you. Your professor's care about you. They always ask you how you doing. Costs are small enough to wear. Your professors will be able to get to know you on What I love about you is this, uh that's one of the reasons why I chose it. And there are also many opportunities for idiot involved on campus with campus ministry clubs, sororities Go Rush is a fun and just, you know, song fast. There's so many activities that you could do and get involved, and also that helps you narrow down what you might want to do. What you get. You just mentioned song fast. Can you explain what that is? Some fest is a really fun intensive two and a half seeing and where groups get together. And you could do with your sorority I'm doing with my sorority. But you know people from outside of Greek life will get together in groups and perform musical routines. There's a theme every year, and each group chooses specific theme. They keep it secret, so I can't tell you what it is. But we perform over the course of a week, and it's so much fun. Her guys we're about to share with you the secret peppered on nightlife. What's good. I'm sorry, but actually so right now it is eight. Forty five on a Friday night. This is what we're doing pretty with pepper tons of dry campus, which means they're not going to have one around on Friday night. You're not gonna, like, walk to a frat house and have their beer party doesn't exist. There aren't a frat houses. There are no sorority houses. There aren't any on campus parties because a dry campus, which means there is no alcohol or any drugs allowed on peppered on property. Now that said, if that's like really your thing, you could find stuff off campus and like we're close to L. A. You can find whatever you want in L. A. But none of it's going to be here. And most of the people who go to Pepper Dine prefer to do other things on their Friday nights, like watching Netflix and do face masks. Let's see. So I have friends. Just give you guys a run down on, like what people do on Friday. So we're here. Um, I have a friend who's in Santa Monica getting dinner. Have another friend who is in Calabasas, which is It's like thirty minutes, the other direction from Santa Monica. Seeing a movie that's fun.

Me and my roommate is performed at the coffeehouse event that they had going on tonight. And so our friends were there watching with us. And, uh, now they're back. Chilling in the dorm room just kind of hanging out. That's where a lot of the guys tend to hang out. We just showing the suites in the dorms and and play throwback video games and and, you know, just chill. Have a good time. Do you know anyone who's at a party right now? Not that I know. I mean, I'm I'm sure that there are some people, but I None of my first, Not a big thing. Not really. That's not to say that it's completely horrible. If that's your thing, that's great.

And honestly, it's not too noticeable Greek life here on campus. We do have some sororities. And for some fraternities. It's about thirty percent of girls participate in Greek life, and twenty five percent of boys participate. So I love Greek life. I'm in a sorority. It's great for me.
