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.
