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.
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.
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.
