Capital campaign prompts first Oxford reunion

August 10, 2007

The University of Oxford hopes for a last-minute surge in interest for their first campus-wide alumni event.  Prior to now, Oxford's alumni efforts have been largely contained within each of its 39 colleges, but now with an eye turned toward private donations, the university is launching its first general alumni event.  So far about 700 "old members" have registered for the event, including 100 from North America.  A North American Oxford reunion in 2006 drew 800 alum from Canada and the US.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required)
