Master the art of meeting and greeting, while eating! We'll begin the evening with a wine/mocktails etiquette, from none other than Knox alumnae, Regine Rousseau '95. Then we'll transition into the dinner, with etiquette instructor and author Callista Gould. She'll walk you through in a way that’s entertaining and not intimidating! It’s also a great opportunity to network with Knox alumni who will be joining you at your table. We'll end the evening with a social hour, so you can network and chat with Knox alumni.
