HOUSTON--- Over 65 University of Houston student-athletes and athletic administrators took part in the third annual Houston Leadership Academy Etiquette Dinner, Monday night at the Royal Sonesta Hotel.

Athletes and administrators alike were treated to a full three-course meal while they received professional instruction on proper dinner etiquette, how to set a dinner table properly, along with other networking tips and life lessons.

"I think it's really good that the athletes get the opportunity to attend functions like this," said senior men's golfer Wesley McClain. "It really helps to know what to do in social situations, especially now that most of us will be out looking for jobs in the real world soon."

While numerous Cougars were able to learn a great deal, the event was also a great opportunity for athletes meet and talk with fellow Cougars as the spring sports season kicks in to full gear.

"I think all of us were able to take in some useful tips tonight, and I think it's really great that we as student-athletes are able to do these kinds of things," said senior women's tennis player Celia Fraser. "Not only did we learn, but it was also fun to get out and interact with students from different sports."

Houston Athletics is looking forward to another strong season, not only on the playing field, but off the playing field as well. The Cougars will look to build upon a fall semester that saw this group of student-athletes set the UH Athletics record for cumulative grade point average, raising the overall GPA to 2.95, in part by recording the best fall semester mark in department history at 2.92.
