Senior Etiquette Luncheon and Networking Event
12:00pm - 2:00pm in Student Center East, 302


Are you a senior about to graduate? If you are invited to a meal in a professional setting, there are many etiquette rules that you may not be aware of.
Are you supposed to have a drink at a business dinner? What should you order? What do you do with your fork when you finish eating? Learn these and other answers from a professional etiquette consultant, who will facilitate a presentation on dining manners in formal and business settings. The event cost is $20 and includes lunch as well as the etiquette lesson.
To register or for more information, please email alumni@uic.edu. This event is brought to you by the Alumni Association, Career Services, and Campus Programs.
