18-year-old students get first shave in rite of passage

From Danwei.org: “Five hundred 18-year-old freshmen men at Shanghai’s Fudan University had their first shave yesterday in a ceremony celebrating their entrance to manhood…
After shaving, the students also wrote statements on an “announcement wall”… like “Let me choose my own life” and “Nobody can tell me what to do anymore.””
Most Chinese young people live with their parents until marriage, which is often increasingly delayed due to education and career pursuits.
