Exactly 100 years ago today, on Feb. 10, 1915, Wofford’s only student-run newspaper was born. Why the gold (okay, may- be it’s more yellow) paper? In 1955, the Old Gold and Black celebrated its semi-centennial birthday by publishing the paper on colored paper for the first time ever. Today, we’re celebrating our centennial anniversary by doing the same. With now 100 years of sentimental value, the Old Gold and Black has covered a range of issues, both historic and small. From discussing the Methodist Church’s ban on football to the invention of the television’s potential negative effect on studying… from reporting on the Civil Rights movement to advising students how to cope with a messy roommate, OG&B writers have always had the same goal: to be a source of accurate, interesting and relevant news at Wofford.

This year we celebrate a milestone in student journalism by publishing photos and stories from the archives each issue. Check out the photos and stories online
