Welcome to SOTA!


Who Are We ?

At Idaho State University, the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) is doing a lot to promote occupational therapy and help OT students reach greater heights during their academic career.  

Promotion during OT Awareness Month  

To promote OT Awareness month in April of 2007 & 2008, SOTA members wrote, recorded, & aired a radio commercial in collaboration with local radio stations KORR 104 and KZBQ 93.7.
