DPA Orientation

Hello Incoming Partners!

RSVP here:

Please RSVP by Wednesday, August 28. Use this sign up form to let us know that you are coming!

We are so excited to have you join our community this year. Your student receives a lot of information from the Darden Orientation and the DPA hopes to provide a similar experience at an Orientation for the partners. The DPA Orientation has two main parts; what life looks like for your student and what your life will be like as a partner. Administration from Darden will lead discussions around academics, careers and recruiting, social activities, and self care resources offered by Darden. The DPA will provide content around partner life and social events, a Second Year panel with a variety of students and partners, and key information to help you transition this fall. There will be a DPA Family Picnic that will follow on Flagler Court. All first and second year partners, students, and children are encouraged to attend!
