The Student Team

Our Student Team Orientation Leaders (OLs) are role models as well as sources of support and information for the new first-year and transfer students. They play a major role in facilitating the adjustment of new students to the Westfield State University community. They share accurate information about academic, personal, and social resources and serve as a mentor for incoming students!

Student Leaders are responsible for:

  • Leading discussion groups with incoming students
  • Facilitating activities to encourage students to make connections
  • Explaining academic opportunities and procedures
  • Promoting extra curricular activities and social programs
  • Acquainting new students with campus services and building locations
  • Assisting in the preparation of Orientation activities and materials
