Most Helpful Review for Occidental College

The professors here really care about their students and offer as much help as they can. Doors are almost always open, and since each student receives an advisor, the relationship between professor and student is on a more equal level than most schools.

    The campus was really beautiful, and all of the students seem like family. The school strives to offer many unique academic opportunities such as internships, research abroad and grants for students to do undergraduate research. The students really love the school.

    Great environment and students are all nice. Study environment is balanced and there aren't as many distractions. School doesn't get enough credit for how hard it is.

    Oxy is a close community of students who are academically driven, but enjoy spending time with their friends in the sun. The weather is great, the people are even better, and you'll find classes and professors here that speak to you. You'll be treated well and will be given the tools you need to succeed.

    Occidental is a small community where you get to know other students and professors on a very in depth level.

    The environment is strongly liberal and a little too stringent when it comes to political correctness. That being said, it is also a very supportive environment in which individuals like myself can push themselves to become who they want to be. This is a school that cares about diversity, the environment, and equality.

    The campus seemed really nice and cozy. I've heard that having a car is sort of a necessity if you want to get places easily, since it is in downtown LA. Its Urban and Environmental Policy major is pretty interdisciplinary and unique.
