My review

The Good:

The people at Occidental are some of the best I have met in my life. I feel comfortable sitting down with someone I do not know and striking up a conversation. Even the people I do not like I have trouble categorizing as a bad person.

The Bad:

Sadly, the school is quick to crack down on parties both on and off campus. This has been happening more and more. While there are ways to get around it, I long for my freshman year days where the school allowed bigger parties in which I could meet more people.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I learned a lot about how the world works, dealing with other people, and myself. Occidental was also extremely supportive in Helping me go abroad to Tanzania. I had an amazing college experience in which I learned what I wanted to do in this world and made some friendships that will last all my life.
