I spent my freshman year at Oxy and I hated it. Don't be fooled by the Los Angeles address. The campus is located in the middle of Eagle Rock, which is a complete dump. If you don't have a car or a friend with a car, you're screwed because there's nothing to do on campus, especially on the weekends when alot of students go home. And if you're hungry on the weekend after 8pm, too bad because the only places to eat on campus close early. The main reason I left though was the academics. The school is so small that there isn't really a wide variety of classes, and many of the lower division/gen ed classes are really hard to get into. I had maybe 2 good professors while I was there - the rest were truly bad. I ended up transferring after just one year there.
