|Nothing says Wooster like the bagpipers leading the football team down the hill and onto the field at John P. Papp Stadium.
An integral part of the gameday experience at football and basketball games, Wooster's cheerleaders keep the fans entertained and players' spirits up. Activities during games include stunting, jumping, tumbling, and leading the crowd in cheers.
Many students' fondest memories of Wooster are the bright colors and brilliant sounds of the Fighting Scot marching band. With 120-150 members each year, the band takes the field, dressed in MacLeod Tartan kilts performing traditional Scottish fight songs as well as popular themes. We believe we have the "Best Small College Band in the Land."
Most men's basketball games feature a halftime performance from Wooster's jazz dance group, known as the Fighting Scots dance team, which choreograph its own routines.
Fighting Scots Nickname
Did you ever wonder why we are called the Fighting Scots? The origin of the nickname is nearly 100-years-old. Today we're proud to call all 23 of our varsity sports' teams Fighting Scots (no more Lady Scots or Scotties).
