Sir Neil Chalmers, the warden of Wadham College, Oxford University, spoke recently at a reception in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center celebrating the 400th anniversary of Wadham College's founding, and the 25th anniversary of the Sarah Lawrence at Oxford year-long study abroad program.
"I'm not sure how we did it," said Sir Chalmers. "For the first 375 years, we managed without you." He went on to say that the Sarah Lawrence program, which sends up to 25 students each year for the full-year program, has provided an international flavor to one of Oxford's biggest colleges, known for its informal atmosphere and high academic standards. "You enrich our community with your perspective and creativity," he said.
