Beards are not acceptable and are defined as noticeable growth that is beginning to look 'grubby.' Under rare circumstances a few students with medical situations may wear neatly trimmed beards if first approved by the Honor Code Office. Mustaches should be neatly trimmed and should not extend beyond or below the corners of the mouth. Sideburns should not be long or bushy, and should not extend below the bottom of the ear. Men's hairstyles should be clean, neat, and trim. Hair should be above the collar of a dress shirt in the back and less than one-half inch over the ears. Earrings and excessive jewelry on men are not within the standard. Tattoos that are exposed must be covered up.
