Approximately one-third of Belmont’s student body qualified for the University’s Spring 2019 Dean’s List, which was recently released.
Belmont Provost Dr. Thomas Burns said, “This achievement for the fall semester indicates that these students have placed a high priority on their work at Belmont and have invested time and energy in their studies. It is our strong belief that consistent application in this manner will reap great benefits, which will equip them for a lifetime of learning and growing.”
The complete list can be viewed on Belmont’s Merit site.
An online media tool, Merit is used by Belmont to publicize undergraduate students’ achievements both in and out of the classroom, over social media, in hometown newspapers and online. As examples, students can receive recognition when they are named to an academic honor society, study abroad, volunteer on a mission trip, perform in a major showcase or make the Dean’s List. Merit, which is a free service to students, also automatically creates a personal, verified online profile for each student, which can be used for internship or employment referrals.
Merit allows the University to organize major achievements online at Belmont.MeritPages.com where students can view and claim personalized stories, adding their own accomplishments to their page to in essence create an online resume. Students can even share these positive stories about their accomplishments with family and friends through social media networks.
