On Wednesday November 4 student-athletes attended the 4th Annual Professional Etiquette Training Series and Dress for Success Fashion Show presented by the Cathy and John Pelusi Family Life Skills Program.

"Essentially this etiquette series is assembled based on first impressions," Director of Life Skills Lisa Auld said. "When someone first looks at you they evaluate you on how you're dressed, your words, and then your actions. Part one is our Dress for Success Fashion Show where we have some of our new coaches, sport administrators and former student athletes model looks."

Students learned the proper attire for game day, businesses casual, business formal, cocktail, and formal wear. They were also educated on various ways to enhance their look to make the very best first impression.

"We ended up learning a lot about how to dress, how to look formal and how to look casual," Pitt softball player Carly Thea said. "It was really educational and I'm glad I came."

Dress for Success is a three part etiquette series. The next event, Business Communication and Network Training, will be held on November 19 followed by Dining Etiquette in January.
