Student Organizations at Lone Star College-Tomball

Student Organizations
The Lone Star College-Tomball Office of Student Life supports over 25 student
organizations that represent diverse areas of interests and students. We
encourage students to investigate their options and try a few different clubs
out to see where they feel the best fit. The various student organizations allow
creative and energetic outlets for students’ academic, career, cultural and
recreational interests and needs. Twice a year, the Office of Student Life hosts
“Involvement Fair,” an event designed to help familiarize students with all that
LSC-Tomball has to offer outside and in conjunction with the classroom
experience. Student organizations are the campus’ life outside of the
classroom. Types of organizations include academic, cultural, athletics,
professional and social.

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) Summary at
Lone Star College-Tomball End-of-Year Reporting

Fall 2019

Black Student Association
Accomplishments for the year?
This semester we accomplished leadership positions and club membership.
What went well?
For this semester a lot of things went right for BSA. This semester BSA membership, regular meetings, and
leadership positions were established. Our table for Fall Fest was also successful.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
This semester for BSA, the challenge was planning a social event for members and having members stand by their
volunteer commitments.

Drama Club
Accomplishments for the year?
We were glad to see that even if people who had never shown up to meetings before attended, they seemed to
have a good time and had fun doing what we do together. We also got to involve younger students during our trips
to Tomball Star Academy for meetings!
What went well?
We had great meetings where people had fun and enjoyed their time; the old members did a great job of
interacting with the new members and getting them to participate and have fun
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Getting the word out about the club was a bit of a challenge, but we can always keep doing better.

Future Teacher Club
Accomplishments for the year?
The club was proud of the following accomplishments: Teamwork: Window Decorating Contest
(Executing a Plan, working as a Team, Using Individual Strengths) Communication: Fall Fest (Good communication
to narrow down the numerous activities we initially started with) Learning: TCCA Conference FTC members gained
valuable information about technology tools to use in their future classrooms.
What went well?
FTC members agreed that communication within our regularly scheduled meetings was a strength. Team members
were able to discuss topics respectfully, reach decisions through discussion rather than voting, and incorporate
everyone's ideas into plans for the club such as Fall Fest and the club logo.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
FTC members agreed that follow-through was sometimes an issue for our club. This stemmed directly from a lack of
communication outside of regular club meetings. To address this issue, the club is exploring the BAND app and
Group Me for the spring.

66 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Gay Straight Alliance
Accomplishments for the year?
We were able to get a steady, dependable small group of students. Also, we were able to raise awareness for Spirit
Day.
What went well?
We were able to come together to pull off a 2nd place win for the Window decorating competition. It was a good
event to bring folks together and see that we could come up with something informative and fun.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
As always, different students come with different expectations about what the club should be focused upon. As
always, the busier the semester gets the harder it is for students to follow through. Accountability remains an issue
and one we are continually working to improve.

Inkling Creative Writing Club
Accomplishments for the year?
We were able to create a safe and comfortable environment in which all our members like to be. We also
participated in all the activities that we were asked to participate in (see above and the section of "Events" in the
Excel Spreadsheet.
What went well?
Students were very involved in the club activities and we participated in many of them: Involvement Fair, iLead
Retreat, Halloween Windows Decoration Contest, Open Mic/Poetry Slam, International week with Posters on
International Poetry, and of course, all our fall meetings.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
To get everybody together to help with the window decoration contest or the creation of an Inkling Christmas
ornament

Intercultural Club

Learned about a variety of cultures including Nigerian, Hispanic, and British Isles.
What went well?

Halloween, increased involvement with other clubs, and collected canned goods for the homeless.
What went well?
We had a higher rate of member participation, increased involvement in campus activities, recruited more
members than previous years, and enjoyed experiencing Japanese culture and animation.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
The challenges we overcame this semester were the organization of each event and the amount of time given for
those events. We were able to adjust an unexpected power outage during Fall Fest.

67 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Latin American Student Organization

Though our membership went down, we gained new members. We were able to collaborate for Hispanic/Latinx
events on campus (three events). Our student officers have been developing their skills and connecting with the
campus.
What went well?
Students completed Hispanic Heritage Month Event, we created a logo and plan to order shirts, we selected our
community services projects, and collaborated with other groups.

Student schedules and meeting schedules were not a good fit. We changed dates and times to accommodate.
Students were not interested in officer positions.

Five interested students attended the Men of Distinction Informational
What went well?
Five students sign up to join Men of Distinction
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
N/A

Men’s Basketball
Accomplishments for the year?
Made it through the season with minimal injuries.
What went well?
The Men's Club basketball team was able to buy into the system of team basketball early in the season and they
fulfilled study hours.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
The main challenge was keeping them focused the whole semester. Making sure they followed policies and
procedures when it came to travel. The communication level wasn't as high as expected which caused them to miss
games and classes (Need better decision making).

Men’s Soccer
Accomplishments for the year?
We did not meet all our goals this semester, however player morale was very high. Students in the club were
interacting with each other outside of soccer and built a more family like environment.
What went well?
The number of students interested in the club was very high compared to other seasons. Better soccer than other
seasons, however league was very competitive this season
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Getting enough players to clear their schedules to attend all practices and games. If we had all our players our
outcome for the season would have been different.

What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Our challenges were:

2. Limited number of people involved - We are creating a process, Enhanced Membership, to implement Spring
2020.
3. Chapter Resources - We are working to obtain these items.
4. Out of date job descriptions and bylaws - Both are currently being updated.

Accomplishments for the year?
Tabling We had a speaker from Israel. We had a few other special speakers. Club wrote letters to representatives
about the ten-day rule We volunteered at the Tomball pregnancy center
What went well?
Our biggest success has been the tabling that we have been having twice a month on campus, thanks to Sandra.
Club members are becoming more comfortable with talking about Pro-life topics and are becoming more
comfortable talking with people about Pro-life topics and are beginning to use what is taught during our meetings.

69 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Already, I can see a shift in the way students on campus are approaching abortion. It's wonderful to see so many
people who are eager to discuss, debate, and learn more about being Pro-Life!
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
There were not many challenges this semester. What could help is having fewer SGA meetings it is hard to make it
to those meetings and we sit for an hour and a half, and we as a club do not get anything out of it.

Student Government Association
Accomplishments for the year?
We accomplished many things, including:
• Increasing our campus presence
• Helping with camp wolfpack
• Passing out candy during welcome week
• Involvement fair table
• Volunteering with Trio
• Volunteering during the Diversity Summit
• Attending iLead
• Meeting with Dr. Nutt
• Project in progress to rename the loop around campus
• Officer Ceremony
• Fall Fest Table/Activity
• Co-Hosting the poetry slam during free speech week
• Hosted a Window Decorating Contest for RSOs
• Participating in the Tomball Holiday Parade
And most recently we hosted a Town Hall with Dr. Nutt. We have had a very busy semester and accomplished many
things. We are very proud, and this has motivated us to have an even more productive spring semester.
What went well?
This semester, fall 2019, was a very successful one for SGA. We were able to start training the new officers right
away. This led us to build strong connections with each other and dive into the fall semester as a united front with a
vision. With help from our advisor, student life, and administration, we were able to increase our presence on
campus and create a larger sense of student organization culture. We held several events outside of General
Assembly (GA) and Club Council (CC), which went very well. We have received positive feedback from students
regarding our GA and CC events and we are constantly looking for ways to improve them.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Student involvement was a challenge. It has been difficult to get students to engage in GA and our tables at student
life events. We are working on increasing student involvement by trying to create new ways to grab their attention
and show the benefits of being involved on campus.

Student Nurses Association
Accomplishments for the year?
Developing camaraderie, developing a t-shirt which will be ordered the first week of spring semester, and selecting
an organization to support that allows members to help educate the community about safety.
What went well?
We had a great ice cream party to start the semester - it was a great time for the different levels of the nursing
program to meet and play games with each other and created camaraderie that has carried through the semester.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
We continue growing as a group - we need to work on scheduling meetings.

70 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Student Occupational Therapy Association
Accomplishments for the year?
Raised over $8500 for Juliane's Compassion for Critters. Participated in all required events
Participated in Rock Steady events. Most SOTA members ever. Mentorship program with the new SOTA members.
What went well?
The second year SOTA members welcomed the new group and ensured that each one signed up to be a part of the
student organization. They created a mentor/mentee program and have really provided support for one another.
We now have the most members that SOTA has ever had between the two groups. SOTA participated in every
required event as well as extra events including Disabilities Awareness Day. Everyone participated in the
community service projects that SOTA was a part of.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
The challenge is always being able to get to the main campus for the required events. The SOTA members have a
very difficult schedule which makes getting away at certain times very difficult. Also, initially, it was difficult getting
the new members to participate in the events since they complained about being "overloaded" with schoolwork
already.

Student Veterans Organization
Accomplishments for the year?
Ran a successful Toys for Tots toy drive. Laid out a plan for productivity in the coming spring semester.
What went well?
There were multiple interested parties for officer positions. We are organizing to be more visible and gain more
members
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Finding the best means of communication due to all our members being new and have demanding personal
schedules.

TRiO Trailblazers
Accomplishments for the year?
Partnered with SWATS for the Breast Cancer Awareness. Made a difference with the members who showed up for
the meetings.
What went well?
New Officers who had charisma, energy and wonderful ideas.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Getting members. The officers worked hard at promoting but still did not get the turnout they wanted.

Veterinary Technology Student Organization
Accomplishments for the year?
More involved with all the students this year as a whole; our donation drive for HCPHES was a complete success
What went well?
Involvement fair for fall 2019 went better this year than previous years, had more students come by our table. The
fall festival went good as well. The donation boxes that we set up over in the commons and in the library for the
first time went over very well and we have plenty to deliver to Harris County Animal Shelter.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Constant and clear communication; Meeting times, working around people’s classes that overlap officer
availability; finding a common platform for notifications of events or meetings

71 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Women’s Basketball
Accomplishments for the year?
Adding the Star program was a big accomplishment this year a lot of growth in the women's program.
What went well?
The Women's Club Team did well with bonding on and off the court and had a lot more participation because of the
Star Program. Opening it up to them was a good experience for them to show them how to be student athletes.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
The main challenge this year was focusing throughout the full semester for practice and class work.
Women’s Volleyball
Accomplishments for the year?
Learning how to play with new players!
What went well?
We played a very good first season together and built many new skills!
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Communication on the court and pushing through until the end.

72 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

Spring 2020

Black Student Association
Accomplishments for the year?
This semester we successfully held a seminar to educate high school students about community college. We also
successfully dressed up as important African American women for Black History Month. Lastly this semester BSA
became more organized. We held regularly scheduled meetings and we were able to retain members.
What went well?
One of the things that went right this semester was converting BSA's general and officer meetings to an online
platform. Our officer’s meetings were more productive, we were able to create a meeting date schedule that
worked with our members. We also were able to plan and discuss upcoming events and upcoming meeting ides.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
A challenge this semester was readjusting our service project, to follow the CDC's guidelines.

Drama Club
Accomplishments for the year?
Thankfully, even if we were unable to meet in person, we found a solution. Since being in lockdown in our homes,
we have had two successful virtual meetings with our Drama Club, meeting on Zoom to screen-share about two
hours’ worth of fun games to play. We even coordinated watching a live streamed play together. Though the
format and substance are quite different from our old regular meetings, the time we spend with our members is
still just as fun, and a needed release in this scary time.
What went well?
We started to pick up a great rhythm in our regular monthly meetings, keeping everyone entertained and happy
and feeling included in our club meetings. Even if the number of members fluctuate, we believe we've been doing a
great job of keeping the energy consistent and making sure even those who are shyer and reluctant to participate
have a good time, creating a great camaraderie between us all.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
One challenge is the obvious one, that we had to cease meeting altogether due to COVID-19. It may seem trivial to
feel crestfallen for our lost meetings, but we believe we were a great creative outlet for people to come together
and amid all this uncertainty, it is even sadder to lose a bit of fun of lightness such as our meetings.

ECO Club
Accomplishments for the year?
We got to make a statement. I feel like we were finally seen by our fellow students. This was by holding our eco-
friendly valentine’s day event in the commons. Everyone was able to come and make an eco-friendly valentine’s day
card and learn more about our impact on the environment. Another event that really helped was the tree planting
ceremony as well as the other trees we planted. We got to see new faces that hadn't been with us before and that
was so rewarding to have students come together from different social groups, ethnicity, religion etc. to help take
care of our environment.
What went well?
This semester we did things a little different and I think it really worked out. Our first meetings were like everyone's
where we get to know each other but other than that we changed them completely. We had games that also gave
information about what we can do to make a difference. I think this is important because No one wants to be told
to do something but when you make it fun and give the facts and show them ways, they can improve then they are
making the decision themselves to make a change. We were also able to reach to more students by having events
and workshops.

73 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Just like for everyone the corona virus made it hard to continue meetings especially with members being essential
workers and having to find internet. However, one of the most disappointing things is that we had to cancel several
community services projects due to it. Obviously, we want everyone to be safe, but we had some plans that would
be great teaching moments as well as great way to care for the earth.

Future Teacher Club
Accomplishments for the year?
1. One of our biggest accomplishments this semester was determining our mission/goals for the organization since
we struggled with the direction of the club in the fall. FTC members agreed to focus on: leadership, professional
development, networking, and community service.
2. Winter Wear Clothing Drive Delivery-Donated approx. 250 items of clothing to a low-income school in Waller ISD.
3. Started a collaboration with PTK: Serving Up Sunshine: Stories for Sharing was a project centered around virtual
storytelling, which was paired with fun activities to keep children in all communities engaged during school closures
in consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What went well?
The Service Project was a success! 250 clothing items donated! We gained two new officers: A VP of Special
Projects and an SGA representative. Before, this role was covered by the VP. We locked down our mission/goals for
the club: Leadership, Professional Development, Community Service, and Networking. We ordered T-shirts for the
club! Yay!
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Staying connected after COVID-19 hit was a challenge because a lot of people had connection issues, considering
almost everything was closed. This meant that not as many LSC-Tomball students/faculty/staff had access to WIFI
to participate. Plus, students felt very overwhelmed with the transition to online, so while they wanted to connect
with FTC still, they find it difficult to schedule the time for a WebEx around everyone's new schedules.

Gay-Straight Alliance
Accomplishments for the year?
We had great plans for Spring Fling. We had figured out our service project. We were going to do a rainbow food
drive to benefit CLASS and The Den. We also had established a new way to communicate with band and were trying
to get on the same page about how to get information out to students.
What went well?
We were on track to have a good semester. Again, though a small group, we do some good things for the students
that need an outlet.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Everything stopped as a result of COVID-19. One thing we will to for the future is work on a way to keep up to date
records in the cloud if documents are inaccessible due to campus closure. Attendance submitted is based on
average attendance and our meeting attendance can vary.

Inking Creative Writing Club
No Report Submitted

Intercultural Club
Accomplishments for the year?
Elected new officers for next year. Finished service project: placed textile recycling bin on campus
What went well?
Collaboration with International Studies department to co-host International Tea events
74 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l

Office of Student Life Annual Report

What challenges did the group encounter if any?
COVID-19
Japanese Culture and Anime Club
No Report Submitted

Latin American Student Organization
Accomplishments for the year?
LASO was able to participate in an external service project and based on the student feedback, we will try to do
more outside the campus. This could mean multiple service projects or social events with members outside the
campus.
What went well?
Though we had low participation in fall and spring, we were able to invite new members to our organization. We
participated in an external service project and our officers attended the Diversity Leadership Conference a student-
led conference at SHSU.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Though we had new members our participation was low. We changed meeting times a couple of times and but
then reverted to our traditional 12:30-1:30 pm. We were meeting consistently at the beginning of the semester and
then COVID-19 has not allowed us time to meet but instead we are promoting Student Life activities through our
social media. I think students are facing a lot right now so not throwing too much information or events their way
can help some of them adapt to new changes.

Men of Distinction
Accomplishments for the year?
We have three members to join the Men of Distinction since restarting the program. That is a big accomplish for
the first year, given the circumstances with COVID - 19.
What went well?
Restarting the program went well, the MOD informational brought a lot of interested students to join.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Finding male students who have GPA of 2.0 or higher. Many students were interested in joining, but after
researching their grades, many did not meet the requirements

Men’s Basketball
Accomplishments for the year?
The study hall has become more of a habit and the diversity of the team reflected Tomball's growth
What went well?
The semester started out strong.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
COVID-19

Men’s Soccer
Accomplishments for the year?
The most scorer team in a single match (17-0), one of the teams that had the less yellow and red cards
What went well?
The students were very open to improve their skills about soccer. There was no argument or negative behaviors to
their teammates during the whole season. The students' respect to the team, coach and teammates were almost
perfect.

75 | L o n e S t a r C o l l e g e - T o m b a l l
Office of Student Life Annual Report

What challenges did the group encounter if any?
The students' participation to the trainings and the games was too low. This was a very huge obstacle for a
continuous improvement and creating a "team philosophy".

Music Club
Accomplishments for the year?
We created a bit of community; we sang at the Tomball Retirement Center; we had more ideas that we were
unable to bring to fruition.
What went well?
In a spirit of honesty, this year has been "off" for Music Club. We managed to have a few meetings in the fall, in
conjunction with Music Dept events, but never really launched this Spring. Music Dept sometimes operates at a
crazy pace with multiple events and lots of individual needs related to the Field of Study plus community outreach.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Personnel is a challenge - we need more people who are willing to take on a leadership role within the Club
organization. Several of our more experienced and long-standing student leaders moved on unexpectedly at the
start of the Spring semester - we are headed towards a rebuilding time!

Phi Theta Kappa
Accomplishments for the year?
• Top 25 Chapter Award of all Texas Chapters
• International Award: Five Star Program Award
• College Project Award of Merit
• College Project and Honors in Action Participation Award

• Award of Service - Professor Dupree
• Successfully changed to virtual meeting
• Conducted a successful recruitment campaign
• Learned more about programming and best practices
• Chapter Officers, Members, Advisors, Administrators, Faculty, and Staff
worked well together
What went well?
This semester we were able implement the new processes created in the fall semester as well as continue the
processes that were proven successful. One of the best processes that carried into the spring semester was the
Enhanced Membership Program. Members can keep track of how many points they have and work towards a
reward/graduation regalia. The Enhanced Membership will be used this next year as well. We had an increase in
members in our meeting especially after our orientation and service project in the commons. These activities helped
increase our visibility on campus as well as getting students interested in future projects. We are currently working
on our recruiting people to apply for our 2020-2021 officer positions. We created a legacy service project, Serving
Up Sunshine, and have two extensions of it currently being worked on. Serving Up Sunshine: Grace Care is where
students made cards for nursing home residents and Serving Up Sunshine: Stories for Sharing is a new virtual
project where students are challenged to read a child's story then challenge someone else to make a project that
goes along with the book. In January, we completed our Honors in Action research project and submitted the report
to PTK Headquarters for judging. We also submitted our College Project to Headquarters and the chair, Kathryn
Price, wrote a separate write up for the Texas Region's Poster Project Competition. It is with both projects we were
able to be in the Top 25 of all 92 Texas PTK chapters. The College Project won an award too! After Texas Regional
Convention, we were moved to fully online classes and the campus was closed. We then changed our schedule and
converted to online meetings. We sent numerous texts and GroupMe messages between the officer and advisor

team preparing for the shift in programming. We also reached out to a lot of our members to check in with them
considering the change in courses. We had our first general meeting this week and had amazing attendance! The
members were fully engaged and asking questions. We even went 30 minutes over because of the questions! We
are optimistic for the rest of the semester and are sure we will finish it as strong as we started even with this
unprecedented situation.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
Without a doubt, COVID has posed most of our challenges. The first would be not being able to deliver over 100
cards to Grace Care for our service project. We already have students ready to deliver as soon as the green light is
given from the advisors and Grace Care. Next, converting to online meetings was very different, however we were
all able to adjust well. We are doing our best to stay on top of our online communications, however like a lot of
programs, it is difficult to tell students to look at their email if we do not see them. Not having an induction
ceremony is also a challenge. This is typically a time to get a lot of students involved and show them what we do.
We are hopefully going to have a Fall Induction Ceremony in the PAC (if not, we will create a virtual celebration)
and will honor our new spring members as well.

Student Government Association
Accomplishments for the year?
Even with all the challenges, we accomplished what we set out to do. We had 2 general assemblies, even with one
online, and 3 club councils, with one online. Our officers quickly adjusted to being online leaders and leading
meetings virtually. We finished our yearlong service project, COMMUNITY college, and hosted elections online with
an outstanding 84 votes. We have hosted a couple of social media competitions for students to participate in and
win prizes. We had our two committees meet and review the bylaws and the election rules. Our nominations and
elections committee even conducted their responsibilities online. This was a great semester for us, even if it is not
how we imagined finishing it.
What went well?
This semester we were able to continue our service project, "COMMUNITY" College Service Project, and our SGA
motto, BRACES, that was introduced at the beginning of the fall semester. With these efforts,
we were able to maintain an active presence on campus. Our advisor helped us reach our full potential as individual
leaders and meet our campus expectations. We had a very successful club council and general assemblies. We
discussed themes and activities for both well in advance to ensure we would have enough time to execute it. The
SGA officers efficiently coordinated responsibilities and were in constant communication. By inviting administration
to club council, the students were able to directly discuss their needs and interest with administration and campus
leaders. We participated and volunteered with many organizations, on and off-campus, to increase our visibility
and to show the value of being of service to others. Due to COVID-19, we had to operate fully online, however, we
have created competitions to get students involved with our most successful being our online talent show. Most
recently, we elected new officers. In two of the races, there was more than one candidate. We also had 84 people
vote a huge increase from the previous 11. The increase was from promotion from SGA and Student Life's social
media as well as candidates spreading the word. It is with a bit of sadness but an incredible amount of
appreciation, the previous officer left their position to the new officers. However, this just highlights the fact that
we are proud of what we have done and the connections we have made with each other.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
It is always a challenge getting more participation in general assemblies and now our online competitions. Without
this vital participation, we are unable to get multiple viewpoints about what students want and need on campus.
The unprecedented transition to fully online courses and meetings due to COVID-19 was a challenge on multiple
levels from our officers and advisor changing their schedules to trying to engage students online. We have tried our
best to make this change a positive one and remain active and be a resource for students.

Student Nurses Association
Accomplishments for the year?
A LOT! We really found our groove in the spring semester! See the "challenge" section above - every "challenge"
has a plan for next year. We also came up with concrete plans of how to be a positive presence in the nursing
program, HSB/college, and the community. We are EXCITED to see what we can do when we come back in the fall!
What went well?
We teamed up with SOTA to get more direction. This collaboration is planned to continue into the next academic
year where we will (hopefully) be able to implement the collaborative activities in the HSB.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
All nursing students are considered members under current guidelines, but most do not recognize this or care to
participate. Next year we plan to rewrite our constitution to limit members to those who want to be involved and
participate. Another challenge was trying to involve all three nursing programs, especially officers, in getting
attendance at meeting times. Next year we hope to overcome this by restructuring the officer structure and
creating "liaison" positions to include each nursing program. Lastly,
attendance at SGA meetings was an issue. Again, we have a plan to overcome this next year by naming a liaison
who will be responsible for attending/reporting back from outside organizations where we are invited (such as SGA
and SOTA).

Student Occupational Therapy Association
Accomplishments for the year?
A stronger relationship with SNA. Also, our group grew closer as we participated in campus and community events.
What went well?
Group was able to pull together and start planning for fundraising in order to attend the Texas Occupational
Therapy Association (TOTA) conference, November 2020. Increased participation with all members for activities
that SOTA participated in. We were invited to share our experiences with the SNA. They attended one of our officer
meetings and we attended theirs. We also had a meeting with Shannon Marino where we discussed group activities
that we would like to see happen at the HSB. We are working closely with the SNA and this has fostered a strong
relationship.
What challenges did the group encounter if any?
COVID-19 (Enough said)
