Meet the Staff of Orientation

The New Student Orientation Team is one of the most engaging and energetic groups on the Westfield State University Campus. Our team is comprised of current students, professional staff members, and recent Westfield alums.  From the professional staff to the student leaders, every member of the team is dedicated to welcoming the new students to Westfield State University and ensuring that they have a fun, safe and engaging orientation experience.

Our Program is comprised of three areas that come together and function as one team. We have a student team, a parent team, and an office staff. Please click on the links to the right to learn more about each team and meet the staff that make it all come together!
