“Students are very busy this time of year interviewing for internships, career opportunities, and graduate programs. Participating in a formal meal is often part of the experience. We want students to be prepared,” said Brittany Straw, a career counselor with Career Services.

The dinner was free for A-State students and facilitated by Dr. Beverly Boals Gilbert, dean of Continuing Education and Community Outreach. The dinner emphasized American formal dining etiquette.
