Viking Virtues are the attitudes and expectations of the Cleveland State University Athletic Department. The virtues were created by student-athletes and administrators who participated in the APPLE Conference, which is a health and wellness conference designed to help athletic departments create comprehensive health and wellness programs.

The 7 Viking Virtues are:
Academic Commitment
Athletic Performance
Socially Smart
Responsible Choices
Living Healthy
Recruiting Right
Viking Shield

 

During the 2014-15 academic year, Viking Virtue lanyards were handed out along with a condensed pocket size version of the seven virtues and what they mean.
