The purpose of this research is to answer whether or not men on the UCSB campus conform to society's traits of being a gentleman. When we are young, theories of etiquette and manners are instilled in us. Many of us grow up and continue to be courteous and show people kindness as a sign of respect. However sometimes when I look around campus I do not see people following the basics of etiquette. In particular, I hear many women repeating that chivalry is dead while men fail to hold open doors for women, spit on the ground, and don't bother to remove their baseball caps while indoors. Theodore Roosevelt once quoted that ?Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage,? and with over 21,082 students enrolled at UCSB, 45.8% are men. Women on campus have the upper hand, making up 54.8% of the campus. Being recognized as a party school UCSB is also known for Isla Vista, a community of students densely packed near the beach.

[...] My initial guess was that males still displayed etiquette according to the rules and guidelines of being a gentleman as compared to the secondary research sources Statement of Results Results indicate that not all men are gentleman, and the only time they are gentleman is when they are in heavily populated areas or when they are required to do so for holidays such as Mother's day Exploration of Concluded Results From the results stated, it can be concluded that chivalry is slowly fading from our society.
