Occidental College is a selective, private, coeducational liberal arts college located in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Founded in 1887, Occidental College, or "Oxy" as it is called by students and alumni, is one of the oldest liberal arts colleges on the West Coast.[2] The college is noted for its combination of rigorous academic programs, a small yet diverse student body, and the resources of one of the world's major cities. It has ranked as one of the top liberal arts colleges nationally according to U.S. News & World Report. Occidental students have won 10 Rhodes Scholarships, 12 Truman Scholarships, 55 Watson Fellowships and, since 2003, 51 Fulbright Scholarships. The college is among the top 10 percent of liberal arts institutions whose graduates go on to earn Ph.D.s. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching selected Occidental as a community engagement institution, becoming one of a handful of liberal arts colleges to be so designated for its commitment to mutually beneficial collaboration with its surrounding communities.[3]
