Gentlemanly Fraternity at UNH – Durham NH

“You never know when you’ll have to impress someone classier than you,” remarked Michael, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, at the University of New Hampshire. What a true statement. Twenty members of the nation’s largest fraternity, who pride themselves in being gentlemen, were looking for ways to polish up their dining manners and social skills. They turned to Adélie School of Protocol for further instruction and participated in several seminars focused on “How to Be Your Best”. Initial reactions to this decision? “I was dreading this, I really was.” An unsurprising but not very encouraging message. But what were the opinions coming away from the class? “Very fun and laid back” says one member, while another says, “I’ve never felt more like a gentleman”. Dress tips were particularly memorable, as instructor Armida Geiger told the partakers who should wear striped ties and who should stay away from cuffed trousers. As well as dressing, dining and social etiquette, helpful instructions were given on how to catch the attention of a prospective employer, a friend and the overall respect of others. A student’s way of putting it? “A knowledgeable and priceless lesson of the fine arts and chivalry”.
