Submit a Story to Merit

Merit Overview

Merit is a tool that allows college students the opportunity to create a digital résumé through their “stories” that consist of their academic, athletic, activity, and employment accomplishments—helping them to strengthen their positive online reputation. They're able to share their Merit page with their network; high school alma mater, organizations, parents, peers, and potential employers. The office of marketing & communications is able to use students’ stories to create press releases that are sent to local community newspapers and government officials.

Student Merit Pages

A public Merit page for every student is a hub for showcasing their campus experience. Students can access their page through Loyola’s Merit page. Marketing and communications updates each student’s page with verified achievements and activities that reach thousands of stakeholders and students are encouraged to then share their stories with others. Students can also update their page with their profile picture, activities, and work experience.

Contribution Form

Loyola knows that our students are accomplishing great things and wants to be able to capture those moments and share with our community. Merit allows us to showcase success here at Loyola by publicizing things like dean's lists, participating in a club or activity, landing an internship, or studying abroad.

But, we need your help!  Please fill out and submit a contribution form about success stories of any of our undergraduate students and/or programs with as much information as you can. Updates look best with a photo, so be sure to add one if possible. After you submit your suggestion, we'll review it, and may publish it on our Merit page.  Any student tagged in the form will also have an update posted to their Merit page.

For questions, please contact Angela Martin, atmartin@loyola.edu
