Where Theory Meets Practice

Situated on a 120-acre residential campus in the heart of Los Angeles, Occidental integrates the liberal arts with the cultural and intellectual resources of a global city. Oxy’s location provides a springboard for putting theory into practice and ideas into action. Excellence, equity, community and service have long been the basis for the College's commitment to producing thoughtful and engaged citizens who make a profound difference whatever path they follow. Our distinctive approach fosters both the fulfillment of individual aspirations and a deeply rooted commitment to the public good. It’s an education that is distinctly Oxy.
