Oxford and Cambridge Society of New England
Welcome to the website of the Oxford and Cambridge Society of New England. We are a member of both University’s alumni networks and are the local leg of the stool of your connections to Oxford and Cambridge. We are an independent, volunteer-run, non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and support the interests, welfare and influence of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, U.K., in the New England region. Each year the Society holds a variety of educational events with an Oxbridge connection for members and their guests. All OxCam alums are invited to join the Society, or you can just join the email list or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to stay informed.
Both Universities have intensive Covid-19 related research efforts in progress and are mounting series of public webinars on related topics. For information and to view past events or register for future events click Oxford Covid-19 Conversations or Cambridge Conversations.
If you are a New England based student thinking of applying to Oxford or Cambridge, we can help. We are also a resource for New England high school college counsellors interested in advising their students on the possibilities of attending Oxford or Cambridge.
If you are within ten years of your graduation, you may be interested in connecting with OxCam10, our affiliated young alumni group.
If you are part of the New England innovation ecosystem in some way both Oxford and Cambridge have alumni groups devoted to entrepreneurship. Visit the Oxford Entrepreneurs Network or CamEntrepreneurs for information. You can join their mailing lists here (Oxford) or here (Cambridge).
Membership is open to current and prospective students, alumni, staff, fellows, officers and friends of the Universities. Membership costs $30 per annum, but this is reduced to $10 for full-time students and recent graduates (within the past year). For most of us, just the opportunity to meet our fellow members is in itself a sufficient reason to join the Society, but equally the opportunities for education, networking, and socializing are part of what makes the society vibrant. Our formal dinners also provide a little nostalgia for those years in college. Members are welcome to bring spouses and guests to the events.
All of the Society's events are run totally by volunteers. This dedicated and diligent group plans, coordinates and organizes each function. If you would like to help out and get involved please let us know.
If you know of any Oxonians or Cantabrigians in New England please do let them know about this website, the Society and its events.
