  • Occupational Therapy student Arianna Harris

    "It really stands out that we work with, and not just for, the people. If we build a home, the whole family and community comes out to help, and are so thankful for the little bit of help that we provide. That’s a major motivator in bringing me back year after year," said Harris.

  • Occupational Therapy student Kendra Roby in the  Adult Functional Simulation Training Apartment Lab.

    “What most excites me about occupational therapy [OT] is that I can impact other people’s lives and help them participate in the things that are most important to them,” said Roby.
