Icon13 Even statues have to ‘shave’ at BYU

Not even Brother Brigham’s whiskers are safe from BYU’s notorious beard ban.

Legend has it, the statue of Brigham Young located just south of the ASB once had a beard, but when administrators decided that facial hair was a faux pas, the statue was decapitated and given a new, beardless head.
