Seal

The MSU seal was created by an anonymous student. The three rays on top stand for the Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan (MINSUPALA) regions which were the main thrust of MSU at its inception. The lamp in the middle signifies the light with which to guide the people in their quest for knowledge. Finally the fish and the okir symbols around the lamp along with the color scheme represent the unique and impressive culture of the Maranaos in the area surrounding MSU.

Hymn

Filipino/Tagalog: "Himno ng Pamantasang Mindanao"

Music by Lucio San Pedro; Lyrics by Angelito Flores

Silahis ang katulad mong
Nagsabog ng liwanag,
Ng pag-asa't hangarin
Ng pag-unlad

Ang pook ng Mindanao
Tinanglaw't pinalad,
Nang ikaw'y isilang
Na dakila ang hangad.

Ating ipagkapuri
Itong pamantasan
Ang buhay at pag-ibig,
Sa kanya'y iaalay

Saan man naroon ay
Bigyang karangalan,
Dakilang paaralan
Pamantasang Mindanao.
