Celebrate Student Successes with Merit!

The Office of Communications tells the stories of Wesleyan—including celebrating and sharing student accomplishments through the online service Merit. From research and academic awards to study abroad, volunteer work and co-curricular activities, your Merit page is a verified professional profile that we build for you, and that you can share with prospective employers, graduate schools and others. Over the coming years, we’ll use this system to notify your hometown newspaper, high schools and families about your accomplishments. More than 300 colleges and universities around the country now use Merit.

You don’t have to do anything to maintain your Merit page, but if you wish, you can enhance it with a photo, bio, other activities or work experience. You can also connect it to your LinkedIn profile.

You’ll get an email each time we update your Merit page. Follow the link in the email to sign into your page and see what you’ve been recognized for. You can also enter your name into the search box on wesleyan.meritpages.com to find your Merit page.

More information is available here. If you prefer not to participate, you can opt out at any time by emailing studentnews@wesleyan.edu, or responding to the email you receive from Merit. Questions can be directed to Lauren Rubenstein, lrubenstein@wesleyan.edu, in the Office of Communications. We’re excited to promote your success on your Merit page!
