Freshmen Football Players Attend Etiquette Dinner
By: UCLA Athletics
Twenty-five freshman scholarship football student-athletes attended the Seventh Annual Etiquette Dinner, hosted by UCLA Athletics' Academic and Student Services unit on Thursday. The event was held for the first time in the Pavilion Club in the new Pauley Pavilion.

Associate Director of Academic and Student Services Ric Coy opened the event with a presentation on appropriate dinner etiquette manners, including social behavior, suitable dress attire and guidelines for formal introductions.

After the presentation, student-athletes were given the opportunity to put these guidelines to practice during a formal four-course meal. They also spent the evening networking and socializing with alumni, administration and staff members in attendance, including UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero.

The etiquette presentation allowed the student-athletes a chance to learn and hopefully apply these practices in future formal gatherings.

Wide receiver Thomas Duarte said about the night, "It was great; I learned a lot about etiquette that I didn’t already know that I will use in the future at banquets and dinners."

"It was good to be able to learn proper etiquette,” remarked wide receiver Jalen Ortiz. "There were a lot of things that we didn’t know that we learned and can apply to business or casual meetings in the future."
