Did you make the Dean’s List this fall? RIT wants you to share your good news with friends and family through Merit. You should receive an email soon with a link to your Merit story.
Merit lets students share their successes — such as making the Dean’s List, joining a club or fraternity, studying abroad, getting a job and even graduating — with their friends and family through their social media networks. Each RIT student has a Merit profile page. Claim your page by going to rit.meritpages.com and searching for your name, then click the "Is this you?" link.
Students can upload photos and post activities such as joining a club or starting a co-op. University News writes stories about official achievements, such as making the Dean’s List or joining the Honors Program. These stories are posted to the students’ profiles and sent to the students’ hometown newspapers and state representatives, based on their ZIP code. Students can also share their achievements through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr.
Merit also lets students keep their friends, parents, and others updated with the “follow” feature. Much like Facebook and Twitter, students can let others follow their achievements, as well as follow fellow Merit users.
