Students polishing dining, social skills
Trine University seniors will learn dining and social skills to help them navigate the working world with confidence when they attend the annual Senior Etiquette Dinner on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. in Witmer Clubhouse. The offices of career services, student life and alumni and development, along with Bon Appetit Management Co., the university’s culinary service, are co-sponsors.
A formal four-course meal will give students an opportunity to refine dining etiquette, present themselves well socially at office functions and display behaviors that contribute to first year success on the job.
Jeffery Dahms, Bon Appetit general manager, will cover dining etiquette tips, including the proper use of napkin, table wear and utensils and other behavior to employ during meal service. Alumnus Ken Peterman, who earned an electrical engineering degree in 1979 and presides over ITT in Fort Wayne, will be the evening’s guest speaker.
Students will also learn networking and other business skills from local business people functioning as table hosts. Hosts will include Shira Pacult of Futures Investments, Jessica Stuckey of The Klein Group, Chuck Walker of Univertical Corp., alumna Linda Piersimoni of Mark Kay Cosmetics, Lisa Ashbrook of American Family Insurance, Allen Keen of Elite Consulting Services, Ken Schneider of Vestil Manufacturing Co., Eric Chris of Parker’s Engineered Seals Division, Kris Grant of Ter Horst, Lamson, & Fisk Inc. and Paul Gilbert of Ambassador Investments.
