Business etiquette seminar to be held on South Campus

Students can learn how to properly interact with potential employers, co-workers or clients by attending Business Etiquette, sponsored by Women in New Roles Oct. 2.

Armie Snarley, a certified etiquette consultant and entrepreneur, will discuss the importance of etiquette in the business environment and will also share skills that may be used immediately in one’s current position.

Triesha Light, South director of WINR, said Snarley is a good choice for this type of presentation.

“I invited Armie Snarley to make this presentation because she is a role model to our students in WINR,” she said. “Her topic is very timely and provides information about business and professional protocol issues in the world of work. As a speaker, she is riveting, engaging and educationally provocative.”

The Business Etiquette seminar will be 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. in the SSTU Texas Room on South Campus. The presentation is open to the public.

NW volunteers can lend a hand during Oct. 2 fair

The NW Community Volunteer Fair is a biannual event centered on providing volunteer opportunities and beneficial skills to students, said NW administrative assistant for career services Luann Krey.

“We want to enlighten the students on the availability and opportunities they have to volunteer,” she said. “It’s a worthy tradition.”

The event gives students a chance to meet with representatives from various agencies about how they can help their community, Krey said.

“It brings the agencies together with our students to help highlight what their needs are and helps the students successfully meet them,” she said. “Volunteering is personally fulfilling for the student and great for the community.”

The event is 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 2 in the WSTU Lobby. For more information, contact career services at 817-515-7785.

Honors students recognized on TR during reception

TR Campus students who have made the dean’s list and honor roll will be recognized at the campus Honors Reception.

Students honored in the ceremony can have TR Campus president Tahita Fulkerson sign their new certificates in person during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, students can sign a canvas that will be posted on campus, listing the names of all the honorees.

“To have other students see these signatures encourages them to commit to completion.“ Fulkerson said. “These signatures show that working hard will pay off, and it is worth it.“

Family and friends of the students are invited to the event, which will be 2:30-4 p.m. Oct. 5, in the Riverfront Café. Light refreshments will be served.
