School Song

Like many universities SDSU has two school songs, the alma mater (the Yellow and Blue) and a fight song (Ring the Bells). Please enjoy the renditions found below performed by the SDSU Choir and the Pride of the Dakotas.

Yellow and Blue

We come from the Sioux and Missouri,

The Cheyenne and the Jim,
From pine clad peaks of the Black Hills,
Brimful of vigor and vim,
We sing the song of the prairie,
The home of the Yellow and Blue.
The gleaming gold of the corn field,
The flax of azure hue.
Oh SDSU hurrah for the Yellow and Blue;
Old SDSU all honor and glory to you;
Forever raise the song in praise both loud and long
With loyal hearts so true (so true).

Ring the Bells

Ring the bells for South Dakota
The Yellow and the Blue
Cheer the team from South Dakota
With loyal hearts so true
Win the game for South Dakota
The school that serves us well;
We will fight for South Dakota
So let’s ring, ring, ring, those bells.
