A Note From Anthony J. Azama

WashU Bears Family,

Washington University is an exceptional place. Year after year, our scholar-champions achieve great success on the fields of play while upholding the rigorous academic standards of this world-class institution. Every day they prove that being academically gifted and athletically talented are not mutually exclusive. Their aspirations as competitors complement the education they receive in the classroom. 

As coaches and administrators, we strive to foster the development of our student-athletes through an unrivaled athletics experience. Our goal is to ensure every scholar-champion competes with passion and integrity, but more important, is well prepared for life beyond the Danforth Campus.

Our athletics program has a proud tradition of excellence and enjoys significant success, both of which are made possible by support from generous alumni, parents, and friends. With your continued commitment, WashU is able to provide our scholar-champions with extraordinary opportunities to excel as competitors, students, and leaders.

Thank you for supporting WashU Athletics and investing in the future of our scholar-champions. Your generosity elevates students who demonstrate discipline, leadership, and heart, shaping them for success here at WashU and beyond.

Go Bears!

Anthony J. Azama
John M. Schael Director of Athletics
