Crossing the "T′s" on Etiquette

Around 70 Trine seniors, many of them engineering and business majors, took part in an etiquette dinner sponsored by the offices of career services, alumni and development, and student life the last week of January.

Students enjoyed a four–course dinner, donated by Bon Appetit and served in Witmer Clubhouse, to learn the ins and outs of dining etiquette and proper manners to employ during a business function. Local business leaders and alumni played host at each table, leading students through the meal courses, behavior and conversation.

Alumnus Ken Peterman of ITT and Jeffrey Dahms of Bon Appetit were guest speakers. Students found the speakers insightful and helpful, said Career Services Director Linda Bateman. Some students won gifts, including cuff links, earrings, portfolios and a $100 certificate to the restaurant Eddie Merlot′s in Fort Wayne. The next etiquette dinner will include a business networking experience, Bateman said.
