Oglethorpe students have Merit!
Sharing your achievements
Oglethorpe University uses Merit to celebrate student accomplishments–like dean’s list, academic awards, study abroad, internships and more– and turns those achievements into a verified online profile – a personalized Merit page – for every one of our students.
Updates to Merit pages may also be shared with a network of stakeholders who are interested in each student’s success: high school principals and guidance counselors, hometown media outlets, elected state legislators, and parents and friends via social networks.

You can, however, enhance and add to your Merit page if you wish. Merit allows students to customize their Merit page URL, add a profile photo, bio, and other activities and work experience. You can even include photos and videos to further demonstrate your involvement in these activities.
Plus, when you connect your Merit page to your social networks like Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, your Merit page is easy to share with the people who are invested in your outcomes and your success: family and friends; employers; former teachers, coaches and schools; volunteer organizations and programs, and more. Your Merit page is a way for important people to discover you based on the “good stuff”: a powerful, positive online identity that’s made up of your accomplishments and achievements.
