Don't underestimate the importance of knowing which fork to use for the salad course. How you conduct yourself at the table can impact business relationships and your credibility, according to career experts.

With this in mind, 30 Harper College students interested in adding the skillset to their professional repertoire will take part in an upcoming etiquette dinner. Sponsored by Campus Recreation, students will learn social, attire and dining etiquette at a free, four-course dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16. They'll also receive an etiquette workbook.

"Students will have the opportunity to enhance their social and dinner etiquette skills through this educational event," said Erin Morettes, the Coordinator of Student Involvement at Harper. The dinner, provided by Sodexo, will take place in the Harper cafeteria, Room A137, Building A on the College's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine.

Morettes said the event is part of a lifelong learning initiative being piloted by Campus Recreation and the Office of Student Involvement. "We want to offer programs that teach students necessary life skills such as what you need to know when renting an apartment for the first time, purchasing a car and other important topics that might not be covered in a classroom setting," she said.
