Penn State’s Hair to the Throne: No Shave November Contest

Dean Christian Brady of the Schreyer Honors College. A gentleman, a scholar, and an apparent beard enthusiast.

Onward State and The LION 90.7fm are teaming up to celebrate this year’s No Shave November with class. Put away your razors and dust off your brushes because we’re looking for the best facial hair at Penn State.

Submissions open today in the Penn State’s Hair to the Throne contest to find the best beard or mustache at Penn State. Faculty, staff, student: we want to showcase your full-fledged and otherwise resplendent facial hair online in commemoration of this great holiday. The rules are simple. Submit your picture by Wednesday November 24 at 11:59 pm. Your picture will be voted on by Facebook friends of Onward State and The LION 90.7fm so, as you can imagine, style counts.

Whip out your smart phone and take a selfie, call your friend in COMM 269, or just snap a pic on your MacBook during class. Whatever you do, get us a photo of your badass beard or other awesome facial hair by submitting your photo using the form below.

Submissions will be featured on the Facebook pages of The LION 90.7fm and Onward State.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
