Occidental has really been a great school so far and I would recommend it highly for its liberal arts programs. The campus is very well kept, quite safe, dorms are in good locations and buildings are mostly new and up to date. I have had great access to professors almost any time I needed them - simple as walking into their offices and sitting down. If I were majoring in spanish literature studies, world diplomacy, or political science, etc. Oxy would almost be the perfect school (minus the Claremont/Ivy/etc. reputation since Oxy seems to be totally unknown).

For the physics/math/computer science/engineering geek I would suggest a different location. Oxy has a pretty good catalogue of math and physics courses but they aren't taught all that often since it is a small school and it seems like a lot of the professors on those areas leave something to be desired. If this really is your area of choice and you love it and live it then find a good tech school and I think you will be much happier.
