Winter COMM 395 Students Etiquette Dinner Sign-Ups

We have noticed that our sign-up numbers for the etiquette dinners are rather lower than anticipated. With many students being required to participate in the dinner for class, we want to be sure as many students as required are signing up to participate in the dinner. As a result, we have decided to extend the sign-up period for the etiquette dinners to Wednesday, February 27 by 12pm. After 12 Noon, students will not be allowed to sign up for the dinner, as we will need to send the dinner orders to Aramark. Any student looking to sign up for their dinner can contact me, Paige Matzerath, or Kelsey Thompson by tomorrow at 12pm. If you are requiring your students to participate in the dinner, I would greatly appreciate if you could please share this information with them.

Thank you!
Katie
