SOTA’S MENTOR AND MENTEE PROGRAM We are starting our official Mentor/Mentee program, a great way for everyone to get to know each other better, build relationships with those you normally wouldn’t, and learn from experienced students in the OT program! Who? All SOTA members can participate! This is a great way to get to know the program if you are an underclassman, and for upperclassmen, it is a great way to give back and get to help others that are where you were a few years ago! What? We will be hosting events to facilitate the program, but you are more than welcome to get together more and build friendships that way as well! When? Our first official gathering will be next Thursday 9/26 at 6pm! We will be hosting a scavenger hunt, which is going to be awesome! We will also have refreshments! Where? We will be meeting in the courtyard in front of the PHHP building ! Why? This is a great way to get to meet more people in the program, network, find different opportunities, and really get involved with everyone in the OT program- not just those in your class! =1 social point
