Yeah, Pepperdine is real christy and conservative. Aside from the Ken Starr associations, Ben Stien was a Professor there for a good while, but I don't think he still is. Crosses are prevelent, and a large phallic symbol to god juts out from the middle of campus, which is called an "Obelisk" when it's for Jesus.
That said, I don't that much spills over into the student body itself. The only person I know who went there was a jew.
phallic symbol... Portland Oregon offers not just this level of crazy, but great snowboarding a few minutes out of town.
If you have trouble seeing the obvious and historical connection between an obelisk and a phallus then I'm not sure who's crazy here. If that's a mental leap then I seriously wonder what you're packing beneath the equator and hope the pump arrives in the mail soon.
As for the snowboarding, it blows this year (and by blows, I don't mean it's windy, to further spell out all things sexual), we've had a really dry winter, worst in a long time.
