Scots Day

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

An incredible day!

Scots, you know how to Tartan Up! The Monmouth College family came together to make our sixth annual Scots Day of Giving the best yet! We challenged each other and came through when it counted. We woke up to bagpipes, learned the history of tartan and traveled back in time 20 years through the Bowers Hall capsule.

We also supported several worthy causes, including the Scots Care Fund, the 2022 Senior Class Gift, the Monmouth Fund, the Champion Miller Fund and the Fighting Scots Society. 

Each dollar raised on Scots Day of Giving is its own celebration. It’s cheering on your favorite team, looking forward to a bright tomorrow and letting all of Tartan Nation know that you can always count on the Fighting Scots to come through. Our hope, gratitude, and resilience were on display from the first not of the bagpiper to the last minute. 

It was a truly great day to be a Scot! Thank you for celebrating with us and we look forward to doing it again April 13th, 2023!

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. Don’t worry, even if you’re far from campus, we’ll make sure you’ll still hear those bagpipes.
