Scots Day Honors Monmouth College Traditions


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

April 18th we celebrate our annual Scots Day of Giving, a day dedicated to the spirit of generosity and community at Monmouth College. This day holds special significance as it brings together alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends to support the transformative education and vibrant campus life that defines the Monmouth College experience.

This year, our theme is “The Magic of Monmouth,” an ode to the enchanting journey each member of our community embarks upon during their time here. From the moment you step foot on our historic campus, you’re greeted by a sense of belonging, possibility, and discovery. Whether it’s in the classroom, on the stage, or out in the field, there’s a magic that permeates every aspect of Monmouth life.

On Scots Day of Giving, we come together to celebrate and support this magic. It’s a day to reflect on the moments, mentors, and memories that have shaped us, and to pay it forward for future generations of Scots. Every gift, no matter the size, has a ripple effect, creating opportunities, scholarships, and resources that empower our students to pursue their passions and reach their fullest potential.

Join us on April 18th as we harness the collective power of our Monmouth community to make a difference. Together, let’s continue to weave the threads of magic that bind us as Scots, propelling Monmouth College ever forward into a future filled with promise and possibility. Thank you for being a part of the magic!


The History of Scots Day

Scots Day of Giving continues a long and proud tradition of celebrations with roots all the way back to the 1800s(opens in a new tab). 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.
