we are the Lumberjacks

Welcome to Stephen F. Austin State University – the proud home of the Lumberjacks.

For more than 90 years, SFA has been nestled in the beautiful Piney Woods of East Texas. Our beloved Lumberjack mascot reflects our beautifully wooded surroundings and our dynamic spirit.

We invite you to come experience our friendly atmosphere and excellent academic programs. Axe ‘em, Jacks!

SFA Traditions

The Axe Handle

Every SFA freshman receives an axe handle to personalize with their own Lumberjack spirit. Students can be seen (and heard) banging axe handles on the bleachers at SFA football games.

Ole Cotton

Ole Cotton is an imposing 75 mm cannon that fires a celebratory shot every time the SFA Lumberjack football team scores. The SFA ROTC cadets man Ole Cotton just beyond the south end zone at Homer Bryce Stadium. The powerful blast can be heard – and often felt – all over town. 

The Homecoming Bonfire

SFA's traditional bonfire and pep rally are the centerpieces of homecoming. Usually held in October, homecoming is a series of traditions that bring Lumberjacks together to celebrate SFA. Other events include homecoming elections, Duck Dash, downtown parade, football game, and much more. 

Purple Haze

Purple Haze is more than a section of students at the football game. It's a commitment to carry out The SFA Way and the Lumberjack Spirit while supporting fellow members of the University, on the field, court, diamond, or any other way possible. Each new student receives a Purple Haze T-shirt during orientation
