Meaning and history

Pepperdine Waves logo history

The current Pepperdine Waves logo features a large “P” in navy blue with orange trim. The soft curve of the “P” and the blue color conjure up the ocean waves, while the orange trim was probably inspired by the bright sun of California.

Before this logo, the school used a more cluttered one where the full name of the teams was given (2004-2010). In 1998-2003, an even more cluttered emblem was used featuring a mythic ocean inhabitant.
