The Spectrum Scruff: Day 14

Mark Robinson

In honor of No-Shave November, The CT will track the beard cultivation progress of four VCU students who will abandon their razors for the entire month. Each issue during the one-month, hair growing bonanza will document their progress. (Follow their updates here.)

Question: What’s your most fond childhood memory involving a beard?

Aaron Mavck

Theater – Freshman

“I would do those mall Santa things when I was a kid, and I pulled Santa’s beard this one time and realized that it kind of came off and wasn’t real. A lot of realities crumbled in that moment.”

James Patterson

AFO – Freshman

“My grandfather’s beard used to always rub me on the head when he hugged me, and I would be like, ‘Oh, Grandpa!’”

Travis Risinger

Marketing – Sophomore

“My dad started growing a playoff beard when I started playing hockey. That’s about it.”

Sean Williams

Psychology – Senior

“I remember my Dad shaved his beard for the first time when I was like 5, and it was terrible. It was like a whole new man coming in and out of the house. He was unrecognizable.”
