What is merit?

Huntington University uses Merit software to publicize student achievements and activities on campus -- like serving on a missions trip, making the dean's list, or participating in a club, athletic team or theatre event -- by creating personalized stories about these accomplishments and publishing them online on our HU Merit page.

All achievements are awarded a personalized badge of approval from HU to show that they are verified. At Merit, your achievements are rolled up into a professional, powerful online profile that showcases your success to potential employers and anyone searching for them online.

You can even post your photo to demonstrate your accomplishment or enhance your profile by adding other activities, achievements, and affiliations! 

Why is Merit important for students?

Merit helps people who make decisions about internships, grad school, and jobs find the "good stuff" about you, and recognizes your accomplishments with badges that show that they're for real. It's like an online version of your diploma!

Merit profiles create a positive online identity for post-graduation success. 75% of companies research applicants online, and 70% have rejected applicants based on what they found. Those are pretty scary numbers!
