Since making the move to Malibu in 1972, Pepperdine University's intercollegiate athletics program has carved out a unique niche that is perhaps unmatched by its NCAA Division I counterparts.
No school comparable to Pepperdine in terms of student enrollment and sport sponsorship has achieved such across-the-board athletics success over this nearly 40-year span.
Here are some key pieces of information to know about Pepperdine Athletics:
Pepperdine has won NCAA Division I team championships in five different men's sports -- one of just 18 schools to accomplish this feat -- and 10 overall.
Of that elite group, Pepperdine is the only school not affiliated with a "major" conference and is by far the smallest in terms of enrollment.
Pepperdine has won a total of 26 team or individual national championships.
Pepperdine is classified as an NCAA Division I-AAA school (Division I schools that do not sponsor football), and the Waves are one of the very best of their kind. Since the I-AAA Athletic Director's Association All-Sports Trophy was established, ranking the various schools on their postseason success, Pepperdine has finished first three times (2004-05, 2005-06 and 20...11-12), second twice (2007-08 and 2018-19) and third three times (2006-07, 2014-15 and 2017-18).
59 alums have either competed or coached at the Olympics, and athletes have won a total of seven gold medals, eight silver medals and four bronze medals.
Entering the 2020-21 school year, Pepperdine has won 212 regular-season or tournament conference titles and has had 330 student-athletes earn All-American honors.
