The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) has had a busy fall connecting students with each other and the OT profession.
Earlier this month, SOTA hosted a successful Friendsgiving in partnership with the Coalition of Occupational Therapy Advocates for Diversity (COTAD).
SOTA also recently paired CO2025 and CO2026 student members to create Big/Little peer pairings. The goal is to foster connections and friendships between the cohorts and create a direct line of communication and vehicle for advice. SOTA hosted a Big/Little social at Clouds Brewing and is looking forward to hosting more fun events. SOTA also created a physical therapy appreciation table for their fellow interprofessional colleagues in October to celebrate National Physical Therapy Month.
SOTA leaders are Cami Wolff, Danna Atway, Sarah Kemps, and Scotti Russell.
“The best way as a SOTA member to stay involved is to come to meetings and events and take advantage of the resources provided, time flies in this program so definitely take advantage of chances you do get within the first two years while on campus for SOTA involvement,” said Russell.
