Why do we have a beard card in BYUI?
If you have a look at the website here under Men, it says that beards are not appropriate. I guess it has to do with the honor code the Church Educational System has set, at least in BYU-Idaho. There seem to be a few exemptions to this rule, and those being:
1- If you have a medical conditon
2- Religious views which require the wearing of a beard.
Before you get the card though, you will need to attend a seminar, offered at the beginning of each semester. Good luck!
