    Sometimes the food is excellent, but I am a vegetarian and there aren't always many options for me.

    The cafeteria at Westfield is...cafeteria food. You will get used to it and sometimes there is a very tasty meal. There are on-campus restaurants that always offer great alternatives.

    There are so many different choices of where to eat. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner you have a choice of the dining commons, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, Quixotes, Pandini�s, and the Perch. The possibilities of meals are endless. There are breakfast sandwiches, coffees, grilled foods, pasta, wings, salads you name it. If you ever get bored with the food here you always have the option of ordering food from Chinese restaurants, pizza parlors, etc. You can also use your owl bucks for most of these places near the Westfield Center. For the dining places on campus the quality is great and the service is nice.

    The food is unbelievable. Their are so many choices including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You also don't always have to eat at the dining hall because they have other places to eat on campus including subway and Dunkin Donuts. Also, on your school I.D., you have some money that you can use for off campus restaurants like apple bees and friendly's.

    The dining commons at Westfield isn't anything special. Although you will always find something to eat, it is either a hit or miss. Also, don't expect to have many options on the weekends.

    You have to meet Maria! She is the heart and soul of all things food at Westfield State. She's worked hard to give students the best and widest variety of options. We have an area specifically gluten free, and area specifically with vegan options, as well has having a wide variety of options for students without dietary restrictions.

    We do not have Greek organizations on campus. However, if you are interested in a sorority or fraternity, there are schools within a close radius of Westfield, such as American International College or University of Massachusetts, Amherst, that will provide that do pledge others

  • May-16-2012 I am a current student here

    . . . You have to be invited and an honer student to get into it. I was invited my last year, but I ripped up the paper. It wasn't worth it because some of the people in the club think that it gives them the right to walk on water or whatever.
