Regional Red Brick Rewards
Regional Red Brick Rewards (RBR) is a 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.
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.

Yes, as there are many important topics covered about RSG Funding, event planning and many other topics including changes to policies, especially with the impact of COVID on our programming processes.
How can I check our status in Red Brick Rewards?
Once you are enrolled in the Paths for RRBR on the Hub as an entity account, you will be able to check your status at any time through that portal.
Our HUB Path says we do not have a certain requirement, but we do. Why?
First, make sure you have submitted all of the correct items to the Path for RRBR on the Hub. (Also, make sure you are logged in as your entity account!) If you've submitted something and it still does not show up, it may not have been checked through our office. Please give us up to 3 weeks in reviewing submissions due to high volume.
My org doesn't get RSG Funding. Do we need to do the 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.
