Scots Day

18 hours and 53 minutes to honor our heritage and traditions.

Scots Day of Giving

In celebration of our founding in 1853, we come together to honor the people and places that make Monmouth memorable for generations of Fighting Scots. 

Thanks a quarter-million!

The party has wound down and we’ve finally cleaned up. A total of 1,063 Scots came together across our entire Tartan Nation (here’s looking at you, West Virginia!) to raise a huge $271,852 on our 5th annual Scots Day of Giving.  Those funds are already going to work to help provide current and future Scots the best campus experience possible. Thanks again for reminding everyone that Scots help Scots.

The History of Scots Day

Scots Day of Giving continues a long and proud tradition of celebrations with roots all the way back in the 1800s. Once, Adam West even got involved! We keep the party alive every April with our Scots Day of Giving—make sure to look out for our announcement in 2022. Don’t worry, even if you’re far from campus, we’ll make sure you’ll still hear those bagpipes.
