Oxy gives incredible financial aid. Being out of state I was unfamiliar with the reputation and I wasn't prepared for the tough academics. I came from being a top student to being a middle of the road achiever here. Definatly some brilliant people, and high expectations of all students. The best thing about this school is the faculty. they are involved, interested, and most make teaching their top priority. Your professors will know you personally. They will care about your sucess as much as you will. Even the administrations office has a friendly feel. Though they have fair amount of expected red tape, even the staff at the registrars office will know your name, major, etc. after only a couple visits. The student body is very diverse, political and quite quirky. Lots of people going in many different directions. Oxy may be a small school but it lacked any really community feeling. Expect great classroom lectures and discussions with classmates, but little continuation of that outside the classroom. As a result it can be hard intially to make friends at first. find your niche. Oxy is 15 minutes away from everything but close to nothing. Get a car if you want to see Los Angeles.
