Feb. 28, 2012
On Monday, February 20th, 2012, Student-Athlete Affairs, Allianz, and TCF Bank worked together to create an event for student-athletes not only to learn proper etiquette, but the event also served as a tool for networking and outreach for the student-athletes and the 21 different professionals whom attended. A total number of 49 student athletes attended this event.
During this event, which was led by Etiquette professional, and also Alianz representative, Darcy Matz, student-athletes checked in, introduced themselves to their respective table employer, and went about dinner in a casual manner while learning tips and pointers about the importance and the role of etiquette in the professional world. All student-athletes were assigned a table with fellow student-athletes and also were seated by experts in their respective fields of interest.
Leighton Leerum, a member of the Women's Track and Field team stated about the event, "The young professionals dinner not only opened my eyes to the important fundamentals of etiquette, but it also allowed me to speak in depth to a professional in the medical field that is of interest to me."
There were many people who made this event possible including the sponsors of Allianz and TCF Bank. Special thanks to them, the Student-Athlete Affairs program, and the professionals who attended this event that made the night a memorable experience for our Gophers!
