In honor of No-Shave November, the resident assistants in Pierce Hall will refrain from shaving for a good cause.

“Pierce is running an election between the 10 RAs. We are not going to shave during November not only to compete against each other but to raise awareness about testicular prostate cancer which is one of the leading causes of cancer related death among men,” Drew Hill, senior in exercise physiology, said.

The RAs will be hosting programs such as a meet-the-candidate’s luncheon as well as collecting money that will be donated to the Movember council to promote men’s health. At the end of the month, residents of Pierce hall will vote on who has the best facial hair. The winner of last year’s election, Brighton Changa, thinks that this year’s election has great potential.

“We have some good things planned out. There will be some campaign ads that will go from funny to serious and some scandals that always happen in a good campaign,” Changa said.

The RAs said they hope this program will get residents involved in the action.

“I got a few residents that already started some are looking rugged already,” Changa said. “So if I don’t win, at least my hallway will win.”
