Named after Dayton-area business and civic leader David L. Rike, retired chairman of Rike's Department Store and a member of the WSU Board of Trustees from 1969 to 1973, Rike Hall was completed in 1981. Home of the Raj Soin College of Business, the building underwent a major renovation in 2007, with 22 classrooms updated with technology enhancements and additional improvements throughout the building, including the nationally recognized Soin Trading Center.
