The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) is a recognized campus organization consisting of currently enrolled occupational therapy students and intent students. General business meetings are held monthly and minimal membership dues are assessed each semester. Students interested in joining SOTA are encouraged to contact the SOTA faculty advisor or speak to a SOTA officer.
Pi Theta Epsilon is the National Occupational Therapy Honor Society. EMU's OT program is the Epsilon chapter and is a recognized student organization. At the conclusion of the first semester of study in the OT program, grade point averages are calculated and the top 35% of students are invited to join the organization. The focus of the organization is on advancing scholarly activity and service. An induction ceremony is held in the second semester of the program for those students, their families and friends and faculty.
