Young Professional's Etiquette Dinner

The Young Professional’s Etiquette Dinner is a formal opportunity for student-athletes and local professionals to network while learning proper dinner etiquette over a full-course meal.


Here are a few things you'll learn about at the Young Professional's Etiquette Dinner:


  • Always wait until everyone at the table is served before you begin eating
  • Hand on your lap when not eating
  • Place your fork and knife in the 3 o'clock position once done eating


  • Introduce yourself with a firm handshake and your name
  • Create an "elevator speech"
  • Practice emphatic listening
  • Email contact with a "follow up"
