Business Etiquette Dinner for Student-Athletes

Our student-athletes pursue excellence in all they do—in competition, in the classroom, and in life. We work hard to make sure they are successful not just while they are at Columbia but also beyond their four years here. One key initiative is the Business Etiquette Dinner for first-years and sophomores, which introduces our student-athletes to the ins and outs of networking, interviewing, and professional etiquette. Jessica De Palo and her team work tirelessly to prepare our student-athletes for their careers and forge connections with alumni, and this project is in her honor. This dinner is one of the many initiatives and resources funded through The Fund for Excellence. Your gift to The Fund for Excellence will support this dinner and the many other needs of our student-athletes. 

This project ends at midnight on Columbia Giving Day, 10/26/16.
