First Year student Ahana Das (Class of 2022) recently shared the events of her global journey from the U.S. to Singapore and back, arriving in Charlottesville in time to begin fall classes at Darden. Since beginning orientation and classes at Darden a few weeks ago, Ahana says: 

Darden’s faculty have been absolutely amazing in holding both hybrid and virtual classes, while still engaging the entire class. Students are well-prepared and enthusiastic; my Learning Team and I (a group of 6 individuals from different sections that come together to discuss the material before classes in Q1-Q3) have been meeting outdoors by the Darden courtyard in a socially distant way. I have already learnt so much in my first week of classes from my fellow classmates’ perspectives and experiences and I cannot wait to continue learning more!
