Class of 2018 Senior Gift


Few things are more synonymous with Utah State University than Old Main Hill and The Scotsman. With this year’s Senior Gift, we will combine these two icons by making the lyrics of The Scotsman a timeless feature on Old Main Hill.

Ebenezer J. Kirkham, class of 1918, wrote The Scotsman. Popular use of the song did not develop until much later when Utah State student sections began singing and acting out the song at athletic and social events around campus.

We are asking you to help bring to life The Scotsman on Old Main Hill by supporting the 2018 Senior Gift. Lyrics to The Scotsman will be engraved on a plaque that will be placed at the top of the Old Main stairs. This plaque will be a focal point for photos for years and years to come.

As a senior, this is your opportunity to leave your mark at USU and take part in the Senior Gift tradition. Join in this effort by supporting this historical project.
