#GentlemanTuesday on the campus of NCAT

Orientation season is winding down, and incoming freshmen are starting to feel the butterflies of venturing off into this new chapter full of possibilities, opportunities, a new environment, and new people. If no one hasn’t warned you by now, attending an historically black college or university (HBCU) is going to be a compilation of some of the best years of your life, both academically and socially, and the individuals you encounter from this point on are going to have a huge influence on how these next 4-5 years go.

Of course, a part of that excitement is all the girls you’ll be exposed to. With that being said, I would like to hip the handsome HBCU rookie men to game of how to impress the ladies. Here’s some tips, told from a woman’s point of view.

10Prove that chivalry is not dead.

Being from the South, I wasn’t aware that it wasn’t a common practice to open doors and give up seats for women as signs of respect. When I came to college, I realized that people were simply raised differently than me and probably didn’t know how to be gentlemen, or how to recognize a gentleman. Without expecting things in return (because women can be rude sometimes), be the guy that stands out simply by doing things to show that you have manners and respect.
