Occidental provides a personal student body and faculty relationship. The campus is small yet scenic. There are a variety of student activities and it's location is in the suburbs of Los Angeles.
Occidental doesn't have a 50/50 male to female student ratio. 60% of the school is female so females have a less admissions chance than males. The school is also suburban so the city is kind of far...
Academics (absolutely wonderful professors and small classes), and the social life (my best friends were made at Occidental.)
High cost - but it is similar to other private schools and is worth it!
The incredible faculty. At one point UCLA and USC both had anti-nepotism rules, so Oxy was where all the trailing spouses went to teach. And what spouses! Absolutely first class!!
They've switched from trimesters to semesters since I went there. Trimesters were wonderful: 10 weeks to focus on only 3 subjects. Sadly, they've reverted to the usual semesters.
