    The Merit program is a way for you to get recognized on campus…in your hometown...and in the world for your accomplishments during your time at Iowa State University. Through a series of earned badges you can show off all of your hard work in one place. Are you conducting rocket science research? We’ve got a badge for that. How about that time you showed off your leadership skills? You can find that here too. The Merit program is a way to celebrate your unique accomplishments and abilities (and give you a leg up on life after college).

  • Badges do the bragging for you.

     

    Merit badges recognize some of the great work you’re doing. Campus departments or colleges prepare a brief article about your achievement or recognition and award you one of the following badges: Achievement, Award, Competition, Internship, Leadership, Research, Service, Student Teaching or Study Abroad.

     

    Once you’ve received a badge, it will automatically be posted to your profile and you'll receive an email so you can share it with your friends, family and the world! Don't see a badge that fits your accomplishment? No problem, you can create your own to share! Get noticed for your achievements when your college passes along your story to your hometown newspaper. During your adventure at Iowa State University, you’ll do great things. Let’s show them off!

  • It’s sort of like a digital thumbs up.

     

    Having another accolade under your name is always a good thing. Since Merit badges are awarded directly from your college, they offer a unique credibility boost that your resume can’t match. You can add unique information such as a bio, photos and work experience. Building this catalog of accomplishments and badges is an impressive way of mapping your successes and areas of expertise. Going the extra mile to show how you’ve taken advantage of your adventure at Iowa State University could make the difference between that big internship, dream grad school or dream job.

  • Claim your claim to fame.
