College of Saint Mary has a great occupational therapy program. The instructors make learning fun. The student to instructor ratio makes for a better learning environment. The diversity and service learning projects done at CSM make you better prepared to head out into the ‘real’ world.
The CSM OT program was the best choice for me. The atmosphere of the program has helped me to grow as a student and future therapist, as well as personally. I feel fortunate to be a part of a program that has offered great opportunities that have prepared me to be a successful therapist.

The CSM OT program has given me the chance to really open up not only intellectually, but socially. I have made my best friends here, and I am excited for the future.
The OT department is unique in that the professors care about each student’s success by providing enriching educational opportunities.
The occupational therapy program at College of Saint Mary has provided me with numerous opportunities to succeed. I have learned skills to excel not only in my career, but also in life. I feel that this program has prepared me to “live life to the fullest.”

The OT program at CSM has given me several opportunities to apply what I’ve learned in the classroom. The hands-on experience will be invaluable to me as a therapist.
Through CSM’s OT program, I was given an opportunity to do an international fieldwork to practice my skills and gain valuable experience. I have been selected to present a project I created at the national AOTA conference as a student. My professors encouraged the involvement in our profession’s organization, which is good practice as a future OT to foster our professional development.

CSM’s OT program has been a blessing to me. Here I have not only learned the skills to become a successful OT, but I have also grown as a person.
The College of Saint Mary OT program offers great hands-on experience in labs. There is a good connection between the course content and actual experience needed as an entry-level OT. The program gives students the opportunity to experience clinical experiences in multiple settings.
At CSM, there are many opportunities to develop as a student and as an OT. Classes are based on real life experiences, and the teachers care about your learning. Like any program, you get out what you put in!
