What I like most about Darlington is...
Wow, not sure where to start. I love EVERYTHING about Darlington. I was not happy about the decision my mom made for me back in 1992 when she insisted that I attend Darlington but I knew the minute I stepped on campus it was a inspiring place and a place that would change my life forever. The next four years at Darlington would change me beyond measure and prepare me for the future. I hope that my daughter Charlotte will be able to experience the great Community and Family that Darlington provides. Once a Tiger Always a Tiger!
