When you complete the survey, you can enter to win one of five $10 amazon.com gift cards.

Eastern & Merit
Eastern Connecticut State University wants to make sure that students are recognized for their accomplishments. The University uses a web-based platform called “Merit” to publicize your accomplishments—making the dean’s list, completing a study abroad program, conducting student research, playing on a successful athletic team, or winning a scholarship, for example. This platform allows us to send news items about your achievements to your hometown newspapers, and also publishes them on the web.
For more information, visit University Relations Merit Pages.
