Learn professional etiquette skills while enjoying a fantastic dinner!

If you've ever sat down to a formal meal and wondered:
"What are all of those forks for?" or "Is this topic appropriate to bring up?" or "Which way do I pass the bread?"

Practice through our Etiquette Dinner will put you at ease. This event is a fun, non-threatening way to learn professional etiquette skills while enjoying a 3-course meal! You will have the opportunity to network with employer sponsors and enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship with fellow students. Space is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis.

Student Registration is Closed

*IMPORTANT - Do not register to attend this dinner unless you are fully prepared to attend for the entire meal. A considerable investment is going into what is being provided and we do not want to be wasteful, nor do we want a lack of attendance to take up space for this limited seat event.
**If there is an important reason why you cannot attend, please call our office at (828) 262-2180 at least 48 hours before your scheduled dinner. True emergencies, which are rare, are understood. Changing your mind about attendance at the last minute does not constitute an emergency.
