Student Association

The practice of occupational therapy is only strong as its community. Through organizations and assocications, our students make early connections and maintain them throughout their professional career.

Explore the groups you can join as a current student. 

Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA)

Members participate in fund raising activities and charity events, and network with other students across the country at state and national conferences.  To join one must be a junior or senior in the health science/occupation and wellness major with a minimum grade point average of 2.5, or be an MSOT student.  

Why become a member?  Being part of an organization like SOTA starts you on a life long commitment to your profession.  It allows you to stay updated in current practices and policies in the profession and is a wonderful way to participate in activities important to occupational therapists and the people we serve.  As a member, you can also become involved in community events and represent the field of occupational therapy and Florida A&M University.   

Pi Theta Epsilon

FAMU hosts the Beta Mu chapter of this national honor society for occupational therapy.  Graduate students who maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or above are qualified to be inducted into this honorary organization, the purpose of which is to promote research and scholarship among occupational therapy students.


Our alumni are important to us! Your involvement in our mission to develop occupational therapy leaders of tomorrow is critical to our continued success.   Your efforts make a difference and strengthen our university, our division and our profession.  Florida A&M alumni help promote possibilities for those we serve.  We welcome your participation in whatever ways are most meaningful to you:  as a returning student, as a volunteer guest lecturer, as a fieldwork educator, or as a financial contributor.  We hope that you will stay connected to us, and look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.
