|Occidental College will launch a yearlong celebration of its 125th anniversary with a full day of activities on Founders Day, April 20, which marks the day in 1887 when Occidental was formally incorporated as Los Angeles' first and only liberal arts college.|
Founders Day 2012 will feature 1887-inspired entertainment, including carnival games, barbershop quartets, and a Ferris wheel. In addition, prominent Oxy alumni will lead panel discussions on finance, entertainment, and other current issues.
