University Launches Merit Website for Student Recognition

By Patricia McCafferty

Students, you’re doing great things every day. Making the dean's list, participating in a club activity, landing an internship and studying abroad are just some of the great student stories starting on campus. We want you to get more recognition for your achievements. To let more people know, we use a website called Merit to publish stories about your accomplishments. These achievements appear as custom badges on your Merit page, building a running profile of your activity.

You may have already received a Merit email from us since we’ve started the program. If you’ve already claimed your page, thank you and we hope you enjoy sharing your achievements. We’ll be sending out new badges regularly, so watch your email for an invitation to claim your page or add activities.

Once you have a Merit page, you can add a picture, academic activities and work experience. Having a collection of college achievements will benefit you as you move forward in your academic career and after graduation. Potential employers can find your achievements and activities in one spot, which helps them verify your resume and learn more about you. If you have any questions please, visit our Merit information page or contact us at

We’re proud to have you as a student and we can't wait to publicize your success!
