In light of COVID-19’s impact on Maryville College activities and how this public health situation is affecting Tennessee, the United States, and the globe, Tartan Tuesday is postponed until further notice.
After conferring with colleagues throughout the College, we feel this is the best and most prudent course of action. We look forward to celebrating a successful 1,819 minutes of giving later this spring. Please stay tuned as we share our new dates.
The needs and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priority right now. The Maryville College COVID-19 response website is updated regularly to include evolving guidance for the College community.
Gifts to the College allow Scots to serve where we’re needed most. If you still wish to make your gift, we are grateful for your support and will count your contribution towards Tartan Tuesday 2020 totals.
Tartan Tuesday 2020 is Maryville College's fifth college-wide giving challenge. During this special challenge, between 6:00 PM (EDT) on March 30th and 11:59 PM (EDT) on March 31st, members of the MC community can join together and show how much they care about Maryville College by making donations to the Maryville Fund, the College's top annual giving priority.
Be sure to connect with Maryville College on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and join us for interactive social media challenges and real time updates.
