For parents, by parents 

Seasons of Hope is a compilation of excerpts from diaries, journals, and letters generously contributed by parents of first-year Oxford students who felt their insights and experiences might be helpful to you.  This resource is compiled by our Dean of Campus Life, Joe Moon.
