Tartans Came Together for Tartan Community Day

Classes were cancelled and students, faculty and staff came together during the fourth annual Tartan Community Day, a time to engage, have fun and celebrate community with friends and colleagues.

From an inflatable escape room on the College of Fine Arts lawn to yoga with live music to mask-making, a petting zoo and zip line, members of the campus community paused to connect, restore and play in ways most meaningful to them. Some participated in a service project to support the Light of Life Rescue Mission. And, of course, there were free tasty treats, courtesy of the Food Truck Fest that featured many local vendors.

Here’s a glance at some of the fun and activities.
