Students are competetive, but not cut-throat. Faculty is always available through email and office hours. Some professors are bad, but every single one cares and is there to teach. Community is small, but friendly. There is a high focus on increasing diversity and multi-culturalism. Cliques do seem to form, but at the same time people are still welcoming—never exclusive. Campus is very politically liberal with a small, strong, close-knit group of conservatives. It seems that all there is to do on Friday nights is A) Leave campus B) Drink and party, or C) Stay on campus and complain about the drinkers and partiers. It is completely up to you on what kind of college experience you want. You can choose whether Oxy gives you a wild party experience by drinking half the time, a highly academic experience by studying all the time—or both. If you want a great, small school, go to Oxy.
