Pat Cataldo Etiquette DinnerRed Flash athletes, coaches and staff attended a week of etiquette dinners and mock interviews, hosted  by SFU Athletics, the Career Services Department, and Saint Francis alumnus Pat Cataldo (Economics '66). Mr. Cataldo, an etiquette consultant, gave a presentation entitled "More Than the Right Fork", a guide for how to interact in a professional setting. It is the second year Mr. Cataldo has held the seminar for students.

“People form impressions in the first 7 seconds after meeting you based on dress, behavior, and manners especially when dining,” Mr. Cataldo said. 

The etiquette seminar was part of SFU Athletics' ongoing commitment to educating student-athletes off the court through the Student-Athlete Development program.

"Our athletic department strives to promote integrity, competitiveness, and preparing student-athletes for graduation and a post-college career," said John Krimmel, Associate Director of Student-Athlete Development. "The etiquette programs are just another investment in creating a 'lifetime experience' for our student-athletes; one where they are better prepared for their life ahead and want to come back and stay connected with their program and University."
