Dear Class of 2018,
Wesleyan has just partnered with Merit, an online service that helps us celebrate and share your accomplishments. From research and academic awards to study abroad, volunteer work and co-curricular activities, your Merit page is a verified professional profile that we build for you, and that you can share with prospective employers, graduate schools and others. We’ll also use the system to notify your hometown newspaper, high schools and families about your accomplishments. More than 300 colleges and universities around the country now use Merit.
You don’t have to do anything to maintain your Merit page. If you wish, you can enhance it with a photo, bio, other activities or work experience.
You’ll get an email each time we update your Merit page. Follow the link in the email to sign into your page and see what you’ve been recognized for. You can also search for your Merit page at wesleyan.meritpages.com.
More information is available here. If you prefer not to participate, you can opt out at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or responding to the email you receive from Merit. Questions can be directed to Lauren Rubenstein, email@example.com, in the Office of Communications. We’re excited to promote your success on your Merit page!
