    Darden Receptions

    Darden Receptions are a unique opportunity to personally connect with several members of the Darden community, including admissions committee members, faculty and alumni in your city. We encourage you to come to the event ready to ask questions and socialize with members of Darden's dynamic network. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served, and guests are always welcome.
