Darden Student Organizations

Studen Life OrganizationsThe Darden School’s numerous student organizations work together to provide a complete and well-rounded experience to Darden students. They enhance and integrate students’ academic, social, cultural and professional lives by:

  • Providing career support and preparation
  • Organizing social, cultural and academic events
  • Liaising with the professional and alumni communities
  • Promoting dialogue and learning through speakers and conferences
  • Interacting with and supporting the local Charlottesville community

Darden student organizations are exclusively student-run. They are supported and encouraged by the Office of Student Affairs and the Club Prize for Excellence.

Most of Darden's student-run groups maintain detailed websites of their activities. The officers of these organizations welcome your questions.

Although these organizations have members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in their activities and affairs, the organizations are not parts of or agencies of the University. Each is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organizations and is not responsible for the organizations' contracts, acts or omissions.
