Welcome Families!

Thank you for actively participating in your student's next chapter! We're thrilled to have them join Owl Nation at Westfield State University!

Whether you're a parent, guardian, family member, or supporter of a first-year student, you play a special role. As your student embarks on this exciting journey, we promise to provide resources for their safety and success. Your influence remains crucial as they face new academic challenges, build a vibrant social life, and cultivate independence.

Join our Owl Family Hub, introducing you to campus life and offering essential information to support your Westfield State University student. From their arrival to departure, the hub ensures all your questions are answered, you feel confident leaving your student in our care, and you stay connected as a valued member of the Westfield State Community.
