Well ‘Varks, it’s that time of year again, when the freshmen and sophomores attempt to grow stubble while the juniors and seniors walk around like gorilla-men. Yes, you guessed it: No-Shave November is upon us.
Historically, No-Shave November has been a month at OES where the majority of the male student body has grown out some facial hair over the course of the month. I urge every student, both male and female to grow out some hair (facial or non-facial) and spread awareness throughout the community.
For those who don’t know, No-Shave November (also known as Movember) is where many men grow out their hair to raise awareness about cancer. Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments (two of the most prevalent treatments) causes considerable hair loss in the patient. The month of November is dedicated to the survivors of cancer treatments, and to raise awareness. Lastly, there is also a large fund raising movement across the world to generate money for cancer patients.
In light of this event, Graham and I are having a “grow-off” where we will be shaving once on the 31st of October, and will grow it out till the end of the month. We will also be sending you all updates Graham’s and my “Mo” and will allow you to judge who grew the best, fastest, and biggest hair on our faces.
In the before picture (left), this beauty is preparing for the worst, you never know what the hair will do to you… In all honesty, the Dig wasn’t quite sure at first, but his look has really grown on us.

In contrast to my before photo (left) my sideburns are coming in, but that’s about it. I’m hitting grower’s Bloch about now. However, I mustache you a question, how do all of you feel about the beard.
Lastly, we have a special guest star that you all know and love for his ‘burns…Thomas Pinkava
Chops of the Century
Thank you beardy much to guest star Thomas P. for providing an insight into his miraculous locks! We actually measured, and it is a full one cubic inch!
