What Is Axe Committee?

As “Custodians of Stanford Spirit, Tradition, and Revelry," the Stanford Axe Committee (or Axe Comm) 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.


For more information about the Committee, contact Chair Hayden Henry ( During football season, come find us on the field at every home football game!
