Many of our US based alumni enjoy our regular drinks but also want to feel a greater connection to the academic side of Mansfield and Oxford. Listening to this feedback we decided to run a special Lecture and Drinks Reception in New York on Thursday 7
We were honoured to have been joined by the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University, Professor Andrew Hamilton, as well as number of our Development Board members.
The event began with a drinks reception, followed by a lecture from Professor Michael Freeden, entitled 'That thing called politics', which was warmly recieved. Afterwards, guests continued to mingle and chat and, as the comments below show, enjoy themselves!
'I thoroughly enjoyed last Thursday's event and thank you for including me.'
'I thoroughly enjoyed the event, espcially Professor Freeden's lecture, which reminded me of why I loved being a student! I think including an academic component is very worthwhile, thanks!
'We had a great time and really enjoyed the event, especially in seeing Dr Walford again after several years.'
