BYU students can enjoy a four-course meal, etiquette instructions, and advice from BYU alumni at the upcoming Student Alumni Professional Etiquette Dinner. The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 6-8 p.m. in the Ballroom of the Hinckley Center.
Joshua McCarty, a sophomore communications director for BYU Student Alumni, explained why students should attend the dinner.
“We want students to be part of this event and gain skills that will be advantageous for their future,” McCarty said. “Eating and talking are easy and common tasks, but if students can learn to do those common things uncommonly well, they can reach the next level of career opportunities.”
McCarty said the event is open to all BYU students and alumni. BYU Catering will provide the four-course meal for the event.
“Four courses for $10, one doesn’t get that too often as a college student,” McCarty said. “Plus, students get a networking opportunity that could be an asset to help them go forward.”
He said Anna King, a BYU alumna, will be the keynote speaker at the event.
“She’s an etiquette professional,” McCarty said. “She will be instructing students and answering questions.”
The communications director also said BYU alumni will be acting as table hosts to give valuable career advice to students who attend.
“This is a high-quality networking experience,” McCarty said.
