Behind the Bricks is a team of writers, graphic designers, videographers, and brand managers that is entirely student run. We work hard to keep you in the know by working closely with RIT’s Finance & Administration Departments such as Parking & Transportation, Dining, FMS, Public Safety, the Digital Den, and more! 

Our team is all about bridging the gap between students and staff through the creation of a wide range of original content. By giving students a chance to share their perspective, we aim to create a community for RIT students to be informed, heard, and valued.
