UW Students to Learn from Etiquette Dinner

March 3, 2015

The transition from college student to professional can include a host of challenges, not the least of which is learning how to handle oneself in the social situations that accompany many business interactions.

To help University of Wyoming students prepare for that adjustment, Cloud Peak Energy -- working with the College of Engineering and Applied Science, the Johnson Career Center in the College of Business, and the Center for Advising and Career Services -- will host a UW Etiquette Dinner Thursday, March 5, from 6-9 p.m. at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center.

“Cloud Peak Energy, which is based in Wyoming, is proud to partner with UW for this event because we see our employees developing business relationships based on professional etiquette every day, whether with a local supplier, a business analyst in New York or a power plant executive in Asia,” says Emily Arthun, director of talent management, human resources for Cloud Peak Energy. “As a mining company, we have interactions across the country and around the world. Today’s business professionals need these skills, and it’s a testament to UW that their students are preparing for success in these situations.”

The first hour of the event will be a networking reception with “mocktails,” followed by a five-course, formal dinner. Professional business attire is required.

Close to 150 students are signed up to participate, with priority given to juniors, seniors and graduate students.

“This will be an opportunity for upcoming graduates to learn and practice networking and dining etiquette to prepare for what they’ll encounter in the business world,” says Ann Jones, assistant director of the Center for Advising and Career Services. “A number of alumni employers, as well as UW faculty and staff, have been invited to participate. It will be a valuable learning experience -- as well as an excellent dining experience -- for the students who come.”

Cloud Peak Energy Inc., headquartered in Gillette, is one of the largest U.S. coal producers, operating the Antelope and Cordero Rojo mines in Wyoming and the Spring Creek mine in Montana.
