    Priority Minutes System

    The NC State Athletic Department has extended the privilege of a block of seating at both football and basketball games for Club Members only. These seats are distributed for each individual game as per the Line-Up Procedures described below.

    A minutes system has been established to encourage attendance at non-revenue sporting events and is used as a method of controlling access the Student Wolfpack Club section during major events.

    To earn Student Wolfpack Club Priority Minutes, a member must attend the events that are designated on the Calendar. To receive credit for attendance at a event, members must swipe in and out with the Board of Directors that are administering the card readers for that particular event. Also be aware that members may swipe in and out their student ID card only. To check your priority minutes, click here.

  • Events must be scheduled by the Student Wolfpack Club Board and the General Club must be notified at least seven days before the event occurs. For a list of current minute events scheduled, click here.
    Line-Up Procedures

    All ticket distributions and gameday line-ups will be held at Reynolds Coliseum.

    Ticket Distribution

    • No attendance prior to 6:00am will be noted.

    • Members must defer back to the person with the lowest minute total to ensure fair seating for all members. For example, if I have 600 minutes and my friend has 400 minutes and I wish to sit with him, I would need to defer back until his name was called to receive my tickets.
    • Guest tickets can be purchased, one-for-one with Member tickets, at the time of distribution. Guest tickets can be purchased with cash or check!

    T-shirt Policy

    The Student Wolfpack Club is a large group of visible, diehard NC State fans that receive the most desired block of seats in the RBC Center. It is important that the Student Wolfpack Club create an environment that is both loud and a unified sea of red. To create such an environment, the Student Wolfpack Club requires that all Members wear their Student Wolfpack Club T-shirt while in the sideline section at each basketball game. Members not wearing the Club T-shirt will be formally warned by a Member of the Student Wolfpack Club Board of Directors. Repeated occurrences will result in the loss of sidecourt seating privileges for the next game he/she attends. Even with this system in place, extreme actions can result in immediate punishment at the discretion of the acting President.

    Code of Conduct

    Club members are subject to a Code of Conduct in the Student Wolfpack Club cheering section. Please be aware that the Student Wolfpack Club is the premiere student support group in the entire conference, and what the rest of the Student Body uses as a role model on how to act at sporting events. When wearing the Student Wolfpack Club T-shirt, and cheering at an event, you are a role model whether you realize it or not. Also keep in mind that you are representing the Student Aid Association (Wolfpack Club), and those improperly representing NC State and the Student Wolfpack Club will not be allowed in the cheering section. In addition, any actions that violate NCAA, ACC, NC State, or Student Wolfpack Club policy can result in serious consequences for NC State, NC State’s athletic department, the Student Wolfpack Club, and the individual violator.

    Remember that you are at the event to cheer the Wolfpack on to victory and not to degrade the other team or its players. These remarks will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

    Inappropriate actions includes but is not limited to:

    • Profanity
    • Threatening remarks
    • Racist, sexist, or related remarks
    • Throwing things
    • Failure to adhere to sign-in and/or sign-out procedures at point events


    Furthermore, harassment of any kind toward fans or other members of the Student Wolfpack Club will not be tolerated under any circumstances. The Board of Directors reserves the right to punish individuals in situations in which they deem necessary concerning this matter.

    Consequences for violating the Code of Conduct are as follows:

  • Cheating
    • 1st Offense:
      Offending person(s) will receive a verbal warning and will not receive minutes for that minute event.
    • 2nd Offense:
      Offending person(s) will receive a verbal warning and will not receive minutes for that minute event. Also, offending person(s) will have the number of minutes the event was worth deducted from their total minutes.
    • 3rd Offense:
      Offending person(s) will receive a verbal warning and will not receive minutes for that event. Offending person(s) will have the number of minutes the event was worth deducted from their total minutes. Also, offending person(s) will lose ticket privileges until offending person(s) attend a SWPC Board of Directors meeting and discuss the issue with the board.

    Inappropriate Actions

    1. The Member will be formally warned by the acting President. Note that this warning is recorded for future reference.
    2. If improper behavior continues then the Member will be ejected from that sporting venue.
    3. Two ejections will result in permanent expulsion from the cheering section.
    4. Warnings start over for each sporting event, but an excessive number of incidents can be grounds for expulsion at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
    5. Even with this system in place, extreme actions can result in immediate punishment at the discretion of the acting President.
