No, that wasn't a typo.

"Movember," a.k.a. November, is named to reflect both the month and the activity. During November, men at IUP were encouraged to grow a mustache (or "mo") in support of the project and men's health.

Some 30 IUP men, most in fraternities, grew mustaches and participated in a "pack the house" event for the November 14, 2011, men's basketball game, staged a bowling tournament, and held several other fund-raising events throughout the month, plus the Movember Gala early in December.

There were prizes--for teams and for individuals--including the "Man of Movember" award, won by Mike Stough from Phi Kappa Tau fraternity.

A very nice way to end the semester.
