#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.

9Just be honest.

The most obvious rule of thumb when trying to impress anyone is to just be honest. Sometimes we tend to go into situations with facades, only to end up in drama we can’t get out of. If you don’t want a relationship, don’t lead anyone to believe otherwise, and if you just want to have fun and explore options, be very clear about that.
