Regional Red Brick Rewards

Regional Red Brick Rewards Laying the Foundation for Excellent Student Organizations with Red bricks around the top and bottom

Regional Red Brick Rewards (RBR) is a new rewards program for student organizations (orgs)  to help them reach their full potential. The program is a collaborative effort between the Regional Student Government (RSG) and the Regional Office of Student Activities and Orientation (ROSA). Student organizations will have different requirements to reach the different tiers of rewards. We will be working to consistently add new rewards to different levels. Regional Red Brick Rewards will be tracked via the HUB beginning the 2019-2020 academic year.

NOTE: For those rewards that state that you may request the reward, you are not guaranteed to receive the reward or to receive it to the fullest amount. A request will be reviewed by the appropriate parties.

Please email rosa@miamioh.edu to report your student organization's information.

FAQs

Am I required to complete Red Brick Rewards?

If you are a registered student organization (not an affiliated organization, club sport, fraternity or sorority, etc.), then yes, you must complete a Red Brick Rewards each semester. If you are an affiliated organization that wishes to apply for ASG Funding, you also must complete Red Brick Rewards.

Am I required to attend training?

Yes, as there are many important topics covered about ASG Funding, event planning and many other topics including changes to policies.

What if we do not need to apply for ASG Funding?

Yes, you still need to if you want to receive other rewards such as registration for large events on campus.

How can I check our status in Red Brick Rewards?

You can email our office at any time to see what we have recorded.

Your email says I do not have a certain requirement, but we do. Why?

We can only track what we have access to know about. For all other things, we depend on you submitting the information to us. For example, your organization may have programmed with another office, but if we do not have record, we cannot count it.

My org doesn't get ASG Funding. Do we need to do Buyway training?

If your organization has a financial account on campus, then your treasurer must complete Buyway training. If you have no financial account on campus (Not sure? Check on the Hub by visiting Manage Org, then finance, then accounts), you may ask for an exception. If you have an account, you must complete this requirement.

I have something I would like to submit as an alternative for one of the requirements. How do I get that approved?

Please email rosa@MiamiOH.edu with the subject "(Name of Organization) RBR Alternative Activity" and describe in detail what you would like to submit.

Please email rosa@MiamiOH.edu with the subject "(Name of Organization) needs to be inactive" and explain in your email that your organization is inactive, as well as your role in the group. Note: We will check to confirm this.
