Are you a new student? Our New Student Checklist will help make your transition to Westfield State smooth.×
The New Student Orientation program is designed to welcome you to Westfield State University, ensure that you get all of your questions answered, and get a feel for campus before classes begin in the fall. Whether you decide to commute or live on campus, participate in the Urban Education Program or come to Westfield with a few college credits in place, Orientation will give you the opportunity to meet other incoming students, administrators, faculty and staff, and get connected to your new home! You will be lead through the program by an Orientation Leader, attend sessions to learn about important campus resources, and get a feel for the Westfield State University community.
