Each year, Occidental is cited as one of the country’s best small colleges by Fiske, Peterson’s, and other major college guides. Our high standards and innovative programs have been praised in Newsweek, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. But what sets us apart from other top schools?

The college guides are correct: our students work hard. Our professors are dedicated to teaching, and learning here means doing – designing your own experiments, conducting original research, testing theory in the real world. Standards are high, disciplinary boundaries are stretched, and intellectual lives take unanticipated turns.

Diversity is a fundamental part of academic excellence at Occidental, not something separate and apart. Diversity of race, of income, of religion, of nationality, of viewpoint – all these challenge our students inside the classroom and out, preparing them to thrive in an increasingly complex and intertwined world.

Our location offers advantages few other liberal arts colleges can match. Our students enjoy a close-knit community in Eagle Rock’s small-town setting, and the cultural, educational, and recreational resources of a major metropolis.

With just 2,102 students, an average class size of 16, and a 10:1 student-faculty ratio, we offer individual academic attention, a friendly residential community, and access to a remarkable variety of personal and intellectual opportunities.
