New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Westfield State University.  

On behalf of the New Student Orientation Team, it is my privilege to be one of the first people to welcome you to your new community.

Our team is looking forward to getting to know you during one of our many New Student Orientation programs. It is our goal to help you prepare for your first year as a Westfield State Owl. I am confident that during our program, you will have the opportunity to get all your questions answered, make connections with new classmates, and find the tools to be comfortable in your new home away from home.

We are also excited to welcome parents, family members, and allies to campus as part of our Champions Program. We hope you are able to make connections with one another, and learn all the resources and support services available that will help your student be safe and successful at Westfield State.
