What is the Axe Committee?

As “Custodians of Stanford Spirit, Tradition, and Revelry”, the Stanford Axe Committee (or AxeComm) is a student group devoted to supporting Stanford’s excellent athletics program. 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. During football season, Axe Committee members are on the sidelines during each game waving flags, tossing t-shirts, and blowing our train whistle every time Stanford scores. You may also see us at every men and women’s basketball game waving flags during breaks in play.

How do I get involved?

For more information about the Committee, contact Chairwoman Charmayne Floyd (cfloyd@stanford.edu). During football season, come find us on the field at every home football game or at meetings in Old Union, on Tuesdays at 9pm.

Handbook of Stanford University

Each year, the Axe Committee publishes the Handbook of Stanford University, a collection of Stanford history, tradition, and lore. This year, it was mailed out to each member of the freshman and transfer classes.

Here is the 2017-2018 handbook (2018-2019 handbook coming soon!) :
