What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
Excellent education program with helpful and compassionate professors.
Lillian from Sheffield, MA
Westfield State University offers a large variety of Major and Minor programs at a reasonable price. The school is excellent in its retention of students for both of those reasons, as well as a positive campus environment. The school also works closely with the town of Westfield, particularly with volunteer services, to allow students to feel as at home as possible.
