Occidental College is tucked away in east LA - Eagle Rock and is one of most beautiful campuses around. It is here that i truly experienced teaching in a small liberal arts college. I served as an adjunct in the economics department for the academic year 2009-2010 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The campus is comparatively small but beautiful. It is blooming with flowers everywhere. Students and staff are warm and friendly making this a perfect place for anyone looking to either study or teach in a liberal arts college environment.
Amongst other things what is different at Oxy is the personalized attention that each student is given through a small class environment. It not only makes a class more interactive but also enables different teaching styles. Their Diplomacy and World Affairs program (DWA) is what sets them apart from other institutions.
So if you are looking for a more intimate setting to either teach or learn...Oxy might just be the place for you.
