HOW IT WORKS

  • Students participate in events and activities around campus.
  • University Communications and Marketing gets a list of students who participate and writes a short article about the event.
  • An article is published to Merit and the local newspaper of each student is notified.
  • Students involved get an e-mail to their University account saying they were awarded a merit badge.
  • Badges can be tweeted or shared on Facebook.

CLAIM YOUR PAGE

  • At some point in time you'll get an e-mail from Achievement from the address achievement@uakron.edu - it's safe and not spam.
  • To redeem your badge, you can either create an account with your UAkron e-mail, or login with your personal Facebook or Twitter account.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

  • Merit helps employers find the "good stuff" about you, and it recognizes accomplishments with official college badges that show they're authentic.
  • A Merit page creates a positive online identity for post-graduation success. Many companies now research applicants online, and some have rejected applicants based on what they find. Your Merit page is a way for you to shine online.

ENHANCING THE AKRON EXPERIENCE

Students’ Merit pages show how The Akron Experience prepares students for a career, and makes them valuable members of society and more attractive to employers. The profiles connect what students do in the classroom to the exceptional career-building opportunities students gain at UA.
