Celebrating Student Achievements with Social Media Tool  

Student taking notes in the librarySeton Hall University is participating in a program to recognize undergraduate student success that will award virtual merit badges for accomplishments such as academic achievements, including university acceptance, dean's list and graduation. Partnering with Merit, an online service that helps colleges and universities celebrate and share students' accomplishments, this year's launch will include Fall Dean's List notifications.

The University's Department of Public Relations and Marketing administers the University's Merit account. Each student can claim a Merit page, a verified professional profile that outlines accomplishments at Seton Hall — from research and academic awards to study abroad, volunteer work and co-curricular activities — and can be shared with prospective employers, graduate schools and others.

Students don't need to do anything to maintain their Merit pages, but they'll have the ability if they wish to enhance them with photos, bios, other activities or work experience. Students may also choose not to participate. For details on how to personalize and add content to Merit pages, students can visit the student knowledge base at

Through Merit, updates are also pushed out to social networks, sent to students' high schools, hometown news outlets, and families. More than 300 institutions participate in the Merit program.
