Carnegie Mellon University

Tartan Tuesdays

Every Tuesday throughout the academic year, students, faculty, staff and alumni are encouraged to wear Carnegie Mellon University apparel to show their Tartan pride. Participating is simple — just sport the latest bookstore gear, your worn-in student organization shirt, a simple CMU baseball cap or any CMU swag every Tuesday.

Stop by the Alumni House (5017 Forbes Ave.) on Tuesdays from noon–5 p.m. to earn special rewards and new swag!


Prizes and Redemptions

Participants of Tartan Tuesday get a chance to win prizes and more CMU apparel when visiting the Alumni House by spinning the “Tartan Wheel.” Spin the wheel to win points which will be added to your CMU ID card. These points can be accumulated and redeemed for prizes during Tartan Tuesday operating hours.


Tartan Tuesdays is sponsored by the Carnegie Mellon University Alumni Association and the Highland Ambassadors.
