SOTA involves students
Student Occupational Therapy Association, SOTA, is focused on educating students about occupational therapy in a fun atmosphere. The organization has members who have similar career interests, which can bond members by sharing experiences.
The organization’s primary goal is to promote a professional interest and a better understanding of the occupational therapy field. SOTA strives to meet this goal by exposing students to the roles of a professional therapist through their events and activities.
SOTA brings guest speakers to Quinnipiac throughout the year to educate the Quinnipiac community. One of the largest events is the annual “OT Fair” on campus, in which specialists in the occupational therapy field present different aspects of therapy. This event helps to promote career interest in occupational therapy to both Quinnipiac and visiting high school students.
Members of SOTA are involved in various community services and learning activities to further promote their field of interest. Members visit schools and elderly care facilities to educate the community about how to face and accept life with disabilities through events such as “disabled sundae parties” and craft programs, and SOTA holds various social activities for its members including ice cream socials and cookouts.
SOTA seeks to assist students majoring in occupational therapy with their mentoring program. This program matches a beginning occupational student with an upperclassmen that is able to guide them and provide support by their past experiences.
The program has proved to be very effective in helping new students and encouraging communication among the Quinnipiac community.
Students are invited to attend meetings for more information, or call x8360, e-mail email@example.com.
