Please join the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Toronto in our "Fire Side Chat" series, welcoming Professor Neil MacFarlane on the Situation in Ukraine, Friday, March 28th, 6pm

Neil MacFarlane is the Lester B. Parson Professor of International Relations at Oxford University. After a career in the United States and in Canada, he moved to Oxford in 1996 and served as Head of the Department of Politics and International Relations from 2005 to 2010, and Deputy Head of the Social Sciences Division from 2008 to 2010.

Neil has spent over twenty years studying the evolution of international relations in the former Soviet Union. He is currently working on a book about the international relations of that region, with a particular emphasis on Russian policy towards its neighbours. Neil will share with us some of his thoughts about the current situation in Ukraine, and the latest developments in its relationship with Russia, in what promises to be a fascinating fireside chat.

Class of 2018 Reception - April 6 2014

Dear Princeton Alumni, Parents and Friends:
Please join us on Sunday, April 6, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 for our annual Spring Reception to meet and welcome the newly admitted students from our area, and their families.

We are excited to have guest speaker John Weeren, President Tilgman’s former speechwriter, to give a talk on:

Southern Exposure: From Nova Scotia to Nassau Hall
In 1994, a young Canadian archivist stumbled on a job announcement that led to his first permanent position, an American spouse, nine years as President Shirley M. Tilghman’s speechwriter, and now the directorship of Princeton Writes – a new University-wide initiative designed to enhance non-academic communication on campus. Serendipity played a part in this, but so did the nature of Princeton, where Canadians have quietly flourished (eh). Join John S. Weeren as he reflects on the place and the people who changed his life.

This year we are inviting potential Class of '18 students who have been offered admission but may not necessarily have confirmed acceptance. Accordingly, this reception is an opportunity for us to assist the students make this important decision by putting on the Tiger charm.
