Etiquette for the Professional!

On Tuesday, January 14 from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 P.M. in Room 175, the Office of Professional Development is hosting a program on "Etiquette for the Professional".

Nationally renowned speaker, Terri Thompson, will be giving an informative and sometimes humorous
presentation on proper business and law firm etiquette. Terri brings a fun, light approach to the much-needed art of business and social etiquette for today's professionals. 

We encourage all students to attend; however, if you are planning to participate in the mock interviews later this month, this will be of particular interest to you.

Pizza will be served while it lasts.
