SINAG was established in 1968. Its beginnings are traced from the time when the Philippines was facing a national situation. The students of then College of Arts and Sciences deemed the need of a venue to respond to the ongoing call to speak their minds and take a stand through an official student publication; thus the publication was born. The name is a portmanteau of sining and agham, Filipino words for arts and sciences respectively, while the portmanteau itself means ray of light in Filipino.


SINAG will continuously seek to uphold its commitment to fair, vigilant, academic, and relevant journalism under the principle of democratization of discourse in order to take a coherent stand on pertinent issues. Now on Volume XLIII, SINAG has the vision to foster significance of the College campus publication in scholastic eminence and social empowerment.
