Nazareth College is proud to welcome Merit, a media tool that celebrates student accomplishments on an academic and community level. Merit allows specific school “badges” to be granted to select students who are: named to a new academic or leadership position, join a team, volunteer in the community, study abroad, make the dean’s list, earn a scholarship, and much more. Students receive these “badges” just like they would receive a diploma for graduating or a pin for getting inducted into an honor society; we award them a digital badge for each of their achievements. Merit grants students the attention they deserve to accelerate them forward in their academic and career paths.
Because of Merit, Nazareth students now have access to their own personalized Merit Page and profile that serves as a platform to share their accomplishments with potential employers, family members and more. Students can also easily share their badges on their social media pages, highlighting their campus and community involvement. Once students verify their page, Nazareth will simply post achievements directly for them, serving as a type of resume that builds itself.
Nazareth College seeks to recognize their students and lead the way in helping them seek out career opportunities that they have worked so hard for. Merit assists in that effort by serving as a resource for students to showcase their accomplishments and validate their unique capabilities.
Founded in 1924, Nazareth College is located on a close-knit, suburban campus in the dynamic, metropolitan region of Rochester, N.Y. The College offers challenging academic programs in the liberal arts and sciences and professional programs in health and human services, education, and management. Nazareth's strong cultures of service and community prepare students to be successful professionals and engaged citizens. The College enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students.
