Commuter Services

Welcome Commuters!

Did you know that there are approximately 1700 full-time undergraduate students that commute to Westfield State University?

To find a listing of the activities and events that are open to ALL students, commuters included. Most of these events are again FREE of charge (actually they are funded by the Student Activities Fee, which you pay as part of your bill each semester). You are welcome to attend any or all of these events. We encourage you to get involved in campus life outside of the classroom.

Student Activities Calendar

COMMUTER COUNCIL
The Commuter Council is a WSU-recognized student organization dedicated to serving commuter students.  Commuter Council meets on a weekly basis, at a time that works for all students.  Meetings provide Council members time for discussing issues important to commuters and for planning events open to all students who live off campus.

Commuter events typically include barbeques and bi-monthly luncheons, career workshops, community service events, and other activities that offer students with an opportunity to get to know each other.  The Commuter Council is the best forum on campus for discussing issues affecting commuting students.  New Council members are always needed and welcomed - please join us.

To communicate directly with a student officer of the Commuter Council, email mreid3673@westfield.ma.edu or contact Amy Szlachetka, Advisor by emailing aszlachetka@westfield.ma.edu or by calling 413 572 5443.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA)
The Commuter Council also serves as the organization that recruits Commuter representatives to serve on the Student Government Association (SGA).  Three Commuter Rep seats are available on SGA for commuters, (approximately one representative per 500 commuter students.)  If you are interested in serving on the Student Government Association contact Barbara Hand at bhand@westfield.ma.edu, or call the SGA Office, 413 572 5439.
