Tartan Tuesdays

Every Tuesday throughout the academic year, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to wear Carnegie Mellon University apparel to show their Tartan pride. Participating is simple — just don the latest bookstore gear, your worn-in student organization shirt or a simple CMU baseball cap before you walk out the door in the morning.

Tartan Tuesday participants are eligible to receive a free giveaway each week (while supplies last) if you show us your gear!
