Wolves Grow Out Their Fur

in Features by

Think of your favorite November traditions. What comes to mind? Thanksgiving? Football? Celebrating Christmas at full force even though it’s only been one day since Halloween? There is one tradition that is often shunned and forgotten: No Shave November.

No Shave November is the sacred birthright of men everywhere. It was originally founded in the archaic year of 2009. It was started as a way to raise awareness for cancer, specifically prostate cancer. Each year there are over 150,000 new cases of this disease, and it is not slowing down any time soon. No Shave November is just a small way for an average person to make a difference. Participants in No Shave November are encouraged to donate the money they would spend on grooming products to charity instead. This year’s charities are the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer and St. Jude’s Research Hospital.

Although Wesleyan may have stripped away this rite of masculinity from us students during the school year, there is no restriction on students during the summer or teachers year-round. Let’s take a moment to appreciate some of the most bodacious beards Wesleyan has to offer.
