Red Alert

Welcome to the Official RED Alert
Rewards Program Website!


A fan, sponsor-driven incentive program to increase attendance and WKU Spirit among students at selected WKU sporting events. WKU students are a vital part of the home court advantage at Diddle Arena, Nick Denes Baseball Field and the WKU Softball Complex. Your attendance and energy excites the venues and motivates our student athletes to perform at their highest level.

During the 2006-07 college basketball season, Hilltopper Hoops Rewards Program was created. During the 2007-2008 year, we enhanced the program incentives and created the RED Alert Rewards Program. This year, we are looking to expand the Rewards Program and drastically increase student participation. During 2008-2009, the RED Alert Rewards program will be based on your attendance at Volleyball, Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball, Baseball and Softball Games. Right now, there are 80+ events you can attend.

This program is simple. There is no need to sign up or register for anything. Just attend WKU Athletic events and swipe your student ID, the Big Red Card, and your attendance will automatically be recorded.
