Jonathan Veitch is the current President of the well renowned Occidental College located in and around Los Angeles, California. He has been the chief administrator since 2009 and continues his administrator ship to this day. President Veitch achieved a number of accomplishments before he began his 2009 Presidential term at Occidental.
President Veitch began his foray into the educational world as a student at Loyola High School in Southern California. Showing exemplary academic and off the field scholastic merit Johnathan found himself at one of the most prestigious universities in the world- Stanford University.
Johnathan spent his time at Stanford engaging in all the activities a Stanford man was supposed to achieve. He enrolled in a number of both athletic and social clubs and spent a great deal of time with other outside of class academic engagements. President Veitch received a Bachelor’s Degree and if that wasn’t enough set his sights even higher.
After successfully completing his Bachelor’s degree the future President Veitch aimed at an even higher target- the premier University in the land- Harvard College. He traveled there in order to attempt to receive med/doctor degrees with a heavy emphasis on the most important sections of the life and times of early American Natives and Settlers. Much like his earlier endeavors President Veitch managed to excel academically. He set out to receive and received a full doctorate in a course titled “The History of American Civilization”. This topic is incredibly complex and President Veitch deserves all the credit for this masterpiece.
Another area in which Johnathan Veitch is managing to improve both the standing of Occidental College but to spearhead a number of domestic initiatives that don’t just raise living standards for students and faculty but for many of the low wage workers that toil unseen to clean trash, make beds, cook food and many other lower paid jobs that deserve a living wage. This initiative along with his many projects to beautify and work for the better to take care of the local community is a great step forward between Occidental College and the surrounding community.
Not only is he advancing the issues that students support and organize for he s doing a great deal to make the surrounding non-college community a better and safer place for both students and neighbors alike.
