ABOUT DARDEN

Hi! I’m Darden. I come from a Virginia Beach family of five; two parents, a little brother (little is relative given he is around six feet tall) and a hound dog mutt. I’m a sailor and a singer and a writer and, though most people have never heard of them, my favorite sports team is Team Oracle USA.

Here at the Academy, I am on track to be an Electrical Engineering major but I’m still trying to find my way here because I have many different interests (computers, writing, history, and chemistry mainly). I am a member of the Intercollegiate (Dinghy) Sailing Team and also a part of the Glee Club.

This is where most people say “In my free time I like to…” but I have so many different interests that I usually don’t have any free time. That’s not to say I don’t have fun, I just have fun doing things like sailing with the team or singing with the Glee Club or ironing, shining shoes, or doing homework (yes, in fact all of these things can be fun).

I got my first glimpse of this great place through the cadet blog program and have been where all of you prospective cadets are now and am more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
