This school is a business, like all college. But Oxy does a terrible job hiding their motives. They will slack on services toward the students to save money.

Also, the administration is incompetent and this frequently impacts the students negatively, whether it is in poorly decided housing placements and policies, or just general incompetence in how most campus functions and services are run. Every department on campus is over-funded and there are many redundant departments. This school is hemorrhaging money and the quality doesn't reflect the exorbitant amount of money that is being spent.
