Merit helps us build relationships with our students. The students get the sense that, “Oh, LMU cares about me because they sent me this notification.” It’s gratifying to look at the reports and see how many local newspapers I’m reaching.

Merit is an invaluable way for our school to follow and promote achievements of our alumni. Sharing these stories of alumni success can inspire our current students to achieve, and it helps our school demonstrate our role in positive outcomes.
