Athletic Program Guidelines and Philosophy
Philosophy of Athletic Programs
The primary aim of the Wright State University-Lake Campus program of intercollegiate
athletics is to promote and provide a variety of opportunities for men and women
to participate in advanced levels of competition with students from other colleges
and universities in Ohio and Indiana. We believe that this organized competition
should provide a source of institutional pride and spirit for the total university

- The student athlete must be enrolled an taking a minimum of 7 credit hours
each quarter and be in good academic standing during the year.
- The student athlete must be enrolled in a minimum of 7 credit hours in order

- A student athlete needs to be aware that the University requires a minimum

Code of Conduct
It is understood that participating in the WSU-Lake Campus athletic program is
to be considered a privilege, not a right. Because student athletes represent
WSU-Lake Campus, members shall conduct themselves individually and as groups
as to reflect only credit on the Lake Campus of Wright State University.
