Scots Day

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

It’s that time of year again!

On Wednesday, April 6 — National Tartan Day — we’re celebrating that classic symbol of resilience, tradition and strength. Just as our beloved tartan is a pattern made from many threads, Monmouth is made strong through its caring community.

Join fellow Scots everywhere by donning tartan gear and sharing online for 18 hours and 53 minutes of fun, nostalgic and informational Scots Day activities. Make sure to designate your gift to an area that means the most to you. In doing so, you too are a crucial part of the Monmouth tartan.

This year, we’ve got lots of matches, challenges, and friendly competition throughout the day, so make sure you don’t miss out on a full day of Scots Spirit!

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.
