Purple Haze Association

Purple Haze Association

Purple Haze Association (PHA) is a commitment and a dedication amongst the student community 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. The Purple Haze student section was created in 2000, and became an official university sponsored organization in 2013.

Core Values

We strive to be the main facilitators of Lumberjack Spirit by showing respect through sportsmanlike behavior, demonstrating responsible actions while representing any aspect of the University, and caring for the SFA name and its traditions, all while maintaining the highest level of integrity and remaining united by Purple Pride.

How to Join

Everyone becomes a member of the Purple Haze Association after they receive their Purple Haze shirt at orientation.
