What a week! What a class! The University of Virginia Darden School of Business welcomed hundreds of new students in the Class of 2021 to Grounds in recent days, including 336 new First Year full-time MBA students and a record 139 Executive MBA students. As usual, the classes are superlative-laden and generally incredible, and the full time class features 40 percent women — the highest percentage in Darden history.
Take a look back at a few pictorial highlights of the amazing start to the new year.
And activities rolled on! Students met more members of Darden leadership at the Celebration in the Dome, and the Darden Club Fair introduced new students to the dozens of extracurricular activities around Grounds. On Saturday, a welcome back barbecue on Flagler Court will offer one more opportunity for new students to meet their new community before classes begin on Monday.
Welcome back, everyone. It’s going to be a great year.
