Occidental College

Occidental College is in Eagle Rock, a neighborhood in the northeastern corner of the city of Los Angeles.  The College offers a unique combination of a rigorous academic program, intimate scale, a diverse student body, and all the resources of Los Angeles.  An interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to the  liberal arts takes place in a close-knit community of excellent teacher-scholars and involved students that focus on creativity, academic accomplishment, civic engagement and making a difference.

Occidental's location in a world city on the Pacific Ocean and near the mountains and deserts of Southern California offers ready access to the broadest array of activities and proximity to internationally important libraries and museums, not the least of which are the Huntington Library, the Getty Center, the University of California Los Angeles, the University of Southern California, Cal Tech, and the Claremont Colleges.
