Stanford Axe Committee

Welcome to the online home of the Stanford Axe Committee!

Who are we?

The Stanford Axe Committee is a student group devoted to supporting Stanford's excellent athletics program and Stanford's rich and varied traditions. Our primary responsibility is to guard and care for the Stanford Axe, the trophy of the annual Big Game between Stanford and UC Berkeley. In addition to Axe security, the Axe Committee plays a large role in promoting school spirit by attending athletic games and events. At many events, such as football, soccer, baseball, softball, and waterpolo games, we blow the Stanford train whistle each time that Stanford scores. In addition, during football season we are on the sidelines during each game. We are in charge of the operation of a large boom cannon and end zone nets on the field.

How can I get involved?

Look for us fall quarter on the field at all of Stanford's home football games. You can also join us at any one of our weekly meetings: Tuesdays at 10pm in Old Union 200

For more information about the committee, contact Brad Moylan, AxeComm chairman.
