An unforgettable weekend awaits you. Spend time with old friends and beloved faculty. Experience Darden’s world-class hospitality and fabulous food. Attend class parties on and off Grounds, meet friends under the tent at the Foxfield Horse Races, dance to live music at the Gala and enjoy other scheduled events.
We will welcome back to Grounds the classes ending in 0s and 5s, in addition to the 2014 MBA, MBA for Executives and Global MBA for Executives classes. Abbott Society members (1957-64), who have celebrated their 50th Reunion in past years, are all welcome.

Join a team of volunteers to help plan a Reunion your classmates will remember! Volunteers engage with classmates to encourage attendance and Annual Fund participation, plan or host Friday evening class parties and manage social media class pages.

Reunions are milestones — occasions for alumni to commemorate their place in Darden’s history, reflect on what Darden means to them and renew and deepen ties to the Darden community. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving and demonstrate their commitment to the School.
Reunion campaigns seek to secure five-year pledges that form the backbone of the Darden Annual Fund. The Annual Fund provides critical operating support for the Darden enterprise that enables Dean Bruner to take advantage of new opportunities, respond to challenges and invest strategically in the future. Commitments secured during reunion years enable the dean to forecast income for the next four years. For more information, please contact Robyn Guerin at +1-434-227-7889.
