Alumni Help Students Practice Dining Etiquette at Annual Dinner

On Wednesday, November 20, 2013, the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work and the Augsburg Student Business Organization held an Etiquette Dinner for students at Augsburg College from 6 to 8 p.m. Fifty students, seven alumni and three staff members attended the event.

Deenna Latus, Certified Etiquette Consultant shared the do’s and don’ts of dining etiquette. In addition to being a subject matter expert on etiquette, she did a wonderful job of engaging our diverse group by sharing humorous examples and providing practical tips. By having an alum at each of the seven tables it provided a great opportunity for Augsburg students to network with recent alumni as the students built confidence in handling formal dining situations they may encounter on the job.

Thank you to the seven alumni who gave their time to support current Augsburg students; Laurie Barger ’12, Evan Decker ’12, Greta Gunderson ’09, Andy Held ’05, Dan Hirtz ’12, and Samantha Johns ’12.
