I didn't even know Westfield State had a Greek system.

I don't know the conditions of off-campus living. I don't know anything about it and how much the school helps.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:57:16Z
I love the choice of my majors. My Psychology 101 and Criminal Justice 101 professors are amazing. They explain the course great and you can tell they love what they're doing. I couldn't be happier with the career path I have chosen.

There's really nothing around Westfield unless you take the Springfield bus out somewhere like the mall. The amount of things around here a slim and they get old after a while.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:52:57Z
There are no severe weather conditions. I'm from New England I enjoy this weather.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:52:20Z
The off-campus dining is too far. without a car it's no fun to go because it takes too long and the bus has a shirt schedule at night.

Guys & Girls:
It seems like everyone here has their clicks from high school. Even though a lot of people are new to each other they all seemed to form their own personal groups. Everyone dresses the typical for girls; ugg boots, leggings, north face, scarf. For guys its the normal sweatshirt/jacket, jeans, usually a hat.

I hate living on campus. I feel so out of place. All the girls around me are extreme party goers and I don't like that type of scene. I don't feel safe in my dorm unless I have a friend with me. My roommate never has her key and always leaves the door unlocked. Everyone is extremely loud at all hours and nobody really does anything to control it. The bathrooms are disgusting. The same piece of hair and glop was left on the shower wall for at least 4 weeks. The people around me are extremely immature. I don't enjoy living on campus at all.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:44:57Z
The food here isn't bad. The dining hall has an okay selection. I think they need a wider variety of options for lunch and dinner. The amount of late night food is just right. The quality of the food at the late night restaurants is pretty good!
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:43:12Z
The only thing I love about this school is how beautiful it is, and how all the professors are so enthusiastic about what they are teaching. They also help with just about anything you ask.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:41:43Z
When I toured the school, the financial aid person I talked to told me I shouldn't attend the school because it wasn't in my price range. I basically applied for everything on my own and hoped for the best.

Health & Safety:
I see a campus security officer at the main desk very often but other then that I usually only see campus security when there's an issue.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T02:38:06Z
Every time I enter my hall all I smell is marijuana. My floor is extremely loud and always smells like marijuana, my roommate and her friends are always getting drunk and talking about alcohol. The enforcement is not that strict. People get away with a lot at this school.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:36:19Z
the people here are very cool about if you party, that's fine, and if you don't thats fine too. You can find people who party hard and people who like to stay in, whatever your preference. The campus police kind of suck if you can't handle yourself. You can get caught once or twice without anything really bad happening to you but if you mess up every weekend you can get kicked out of housing.
All the parties are in the off campus housing which is 3 miles away. Unless you can get there the only on campus things that happen are if random people decide to hang out in someone's room. There isn't much night life around like clubs or bars.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:30:35Z
I am a Spanish major with a licensure in Secondary education…which I found out doesn't exist here yet even though it's on the website… so unless you are a criminal justice major or an elementary ed major I would suggest calling the school to make sure what you want actually exists before coming here.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:30:35Z
the professors are great to work with and class sizes are small.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:27:37Z
We don't have Greek life.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:26:46Z
Living on campus isn't bad. University and New Hall are the best but are only for upperclassmen and good lottery numbers. For freshman housing you can get into Dickinson, Davis, Scanlon, or Lammers. Davis is in the middle of nowhere so it kind of sucks. Dickinson is pretty good location wise. Scanlon is all triples and has the worst residents this year. Lammers is the only building that freshman and upperclassmen can live in and its pretty nice, right in the middle of campus.

This is what you have: Friendly's, Five Guys, McDonalds, Starbucks, and whatever you can find in the Holyoke Mall. Most places besides the mall take owl bucks, but forget about going anywhere without a car.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:14:12Z
Freshman can't have a car on campus so I don't know much about parking, but having a car is pretty important if you don't want to get stuck on campus.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:12:19Z
There are a couple different options than just the dining commons that take your meal swipes or your owl bucks/sodexo bucks. There is a dunkin donuts and a subway on campus, there is also late night dining which is delicious from 8pm to 2am
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:09:51Z
It rains almost every other day and it can get very cold. I would suggest investing in a rain coat, rain boots, and an umbrella if you plan on coming here.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:08:49Z
There is a lot of diversity tolerance here for everything; race, sexuality, political views, ext. There are also diversity clubs and groups to meet new people
College Freshman 2013-12-08T03:06:17Z
There's lots of space for sports right in the middle of campus on the green. The athletic center is new, but I haven't really been in there much. There really isn't a lot of hangouts or communal places it's mostly people hanging out in each other's rooms.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
