An “intellectual, accepting, beautiful” liberal arts college in northeast Los Angeles, Occidental is “perfect for hard-working and involved students who not only want to be challenged academically, but also want to be pushed to learn more about the world around them.” At this small school, classes are “intellectually stimulating,” spearheaded by professors who “encourage critical analysis, ask interesting questions, and allow students to create informed opinions about the subject.” The faculty and staff “really encourage students to take a proactive role in their education,” giving them the freedom to “experiment with a wide range of courses.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
