Don’t be a Mad Hatter at your Next Tea Party!

In attempt to prevent students from having similar poor dining habits when dining out with future employers, the Career Center hosts an Etiquette Dinner twice a year, once each semester. This event gives students the chance to hone and refine their dining skills over a four-course meal. We also encourage students to ask questions about dining etiquette, such as:
• How do you eat spaghetti neatly? Or how about a hamburger?
• When do you start dining on a course?
• How important are RSVP’s anyway?
• What conversation topics are off limits?

When: March 30th, 5:30 pm

Cost: $25 per student
Payment Accepted: Flex, Bulldog Bucks, Cash & Check
