Rev'd Dr. James Hanvey, SJ in Washington, D.C. for Oxford Alumni Weekend

The annual University of Oxford Alumni Weekend in North America provides a chance for alumni and friends of Oxford to gather together, meet one another, and hear about some of the newest research being done at the University. It is also a great way to learn more about the various colleges and halls that make up the University of Oxford, including Campion Hall.
