Max Hellerstein and Cyrus Summerlin, who created the app Push for Pizza in 2013, stopped at Syracuse University on an 80 college tour to promote the application and encourage students to download it and incorporate it into their lives.

High school friends Cyrus Summerlin and Max Hellerstein have always loved pizza.

Both just 20-years-old, the two combined different slices of experiences over a year and a half to create the iPhone App, Push for Pizza - whose slogan is "the simplest way to order pizza from your favorite pizzeria."

The name gives it away. A user decides what topping they want on their pizza, the image of the topping pops up on the screen, the credit card information is synced, and the pizza is on the way.

SU students dropped their razors and let their beards grow last month, to increase awareness of men's health issues and to make a bold statement.

Every November, men around the world stop shaving their beards - some in an effort to bring attention to men's health, some not. Various organizations promote beards during the month for different reasons, and Syracuse students also participate for their own varying motives.

Sai Prateek Narayan, a junior architecture student, began growing his beard before November at the suggestion of a friend within the architecture department. His initial reason was not to raise awareness, but to look more mature.
