I chose Occidental for the superior academics, tight community, and powerful swim team. I participated in an overnight visit at Oxy and fell in love with it. The swimmers, professors, and other students were welcoming and made me feel at home. Coach Webb has created a successful program with many new swimmers joining and being ready to improve competitively. I am very excited to be a part of the team and the Oxy community. Io triumphe!
I like the area and how close it is to Yosemite, the student to teacher ratio, the size of the swim team, and the structure of their team. I felt like the team and the school would be a challenge for me that I'm willing to work hard on.
