    The food services are great. There is a subway and a dunkin donuts on the campus, as well as two other amazing food services known as Pandinis which specializes in sandwich and pizza, and also The Perch, which specializes in comfort foods like chicken tenders and fries, grilled cheeses, etc. And the dining commons has a nice assortment of foods that it offers as well.

    A lot of people complain about the food at the Dining Commons, but it really depends on what you get. They have AMAZING healthy options at the simple servings and specialty sections, even if they are a little bit of a wait sometimes. Eating by yourself is totally fine and even sometimes nice to get a break from all the people you are constantly with. Not to mention the other food options like Pandinis are SOOO good.

    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.

    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

    . . . 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.
