About Us

The Blue and Gold (TBNG) is SMU's very own student-run publication, delivering thoughtful and engaging articles to 9,000 active students on a weekly basis, contributing to a thriving community that we are based upon. 

We cover exciting on-campus events, lifestyle features, noteworthy profiles, and op-eds that tug at your heartstrings. 

TBNG is also the home of Dear Madison (DM), a platform for students to share their personal stories, thoughts, and concerns anonymously with our resident Agony Aunt.


We are always looking to collaborate with businesses and non-profit organisations to engage the student community with great deals and fresh perspectives.
