At the beginning of this month, HPU offered an event at a nearby cafe designed to train students on how to eat in a professional setting. Due to the fact I had already been through lessons such as this, I signed up merely for the 5 dollar four course meal (amazing food for that price, by the way!).
Once we started the meal, I quickly realised I had forgotten nearly everything except the very basic tips you could easily pick up from sitcoms, so I ended up re-learning quite a bit!
I cannot stress enough how great this event was, and so many students I talked to did not even think to take advantage of it, or didn't know it was going on because they didn't read their newsletter. I hate to tell people what to do (for the most part), but one thing I stress too much now is to read the newsletter.
We have SO many events for such a small campus, and not nearly enough students take advantage of the numerous networking seminars, free movies, career development opportunities, and free services the school offers!
For the upcoming week, I have a networking seminar, and for the week after that? An alumni perspective opportunity!
