The best way to get to know Oxy is to come visit in person.
Explore Occidental, our open house for prospective students and families, is a full day of opportunities to get to know Oxy through student and faculty-led discussions, class observation, campus tours and admission information sessions. Explore Occidental takes place on November 9, 2018. If you can't attend this day, you're welcome to visit Oxy for a regular campus tour this fall.
We offer tours and information sessions Monday through Friday year-round. Saturday morning tours are also offered between Labor Day and early December, and in April.
Our student-led tour is an approximately one hour and 15 minute walk through the campus. The information session, which lasts 45 minutes and is led by one of our admission officers, provides more details about the college and the admissions process. Visitors should check in at the Office of Admission (Collins House) for their tour and/or information session.
Our office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for visits (as well as Saturdays between Labor Day and early December, plus during the month of April from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
Interested in something beyond the tour and information session? We also offer:
If you can’t make it to one of our tour times but will be on campus, we have a self-guided tour.
