In many non-collegiate universities, the term "matriculation" refers simply to students being listed and registered with the university. In Oxford, however, a student is first accepted by a college, and then he or she is presented formally by their college to the University at a matriculation ceremony held in the Sheldonian Theatre, at which each is accepted by the University to study for an appropriate degree.
Last term the following three Jesuit postgraduate students of Campion Hall were presented for matriculation for the doctorate by the Master's representative, Rev'd James Campbell, SJ:
- Rev'd Emilio Travieso, SJ comes from Florida, and is beginning to study for the DPhil in International Development. The domestic duty he has picked up on joining the Campion community is that of Library Assistant.
Christopher Fajardo, SJ is from the Philippines and recently graduated STL in the Gregorian University in Rome. He is now beginning his DPhil in international human rights, and is also occupied in looking after the Hall’s photocopying room.
- Rev'd Gerard Ryan, SJ is a native of Ireland and a graduate of Toronto University. He plans to take his DPhil on the theme of the theology of love and mutual recognition. His is the pleasant domestic office of being assistant cellarer in the Hall.
