The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) will be hosting an event called Virtual Older Adult Prom 2020. For this event, invitations were extended to senior citizens in surrounding nursing homes and assisted living facilities to attend and participate in the festivities. 

Many senior citizens have been isolated due to the COVID-19 pandemic for the past few months. The prom event will give them a great opportunity to socialize with each other, as well as with the students of SOTA. Attendees will be able to have a night full of fun and get to know each other.

The Virtual Older Adult Prom will be held on Friday, Nov. 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. To ensure everyone’s safety, it will take place over video-chat via Zoom. Nonetheless, it will still be a very enjoyable event for all that attend.

There are several activities planned for the evening, including dance routines, educational resources and many fun games. The members of SOTA will be there facilitating and interacting during the planned activities.

SOTA was established at Kean University to help the personal and professional development of students studying occupational therapy. They also aim to emphasize the importance of community service as well as academic excellence. SOTA has built a community for students studying occupational therapy to help each other grow and advance in their personal and professional endeavors, which is done through mentoring, networking and more.
