History of the Golden Axe
Each semester Northern Arizona University recognizes outstanding Seniors who have contributed excellent efforts in the areas of academic performance, service, leadership and participation in activities. Recipients are awarded the prestigious Gold Axe. The tradition of the Golden Axe Award dates back to 1933 one year after the NAU student body adopted the axe as the symbol for Lumberjack athletics. Since then, the small gold axe has served as the official emblem of the Associated Students of NAU.
Students are honored at the Golden Axe Reception. In addition to being recognized for their achievements and service to the university and community the President will also honor the top applicants with the President’s Prize.
