MSOT Program Ends 2017 with December Hooding

For Shannon Simons, the biggest adjustment between being an undergrad and going to graduate school was managing her schedule.

“It was a major adjustment balancing your time, between homework, classes, extracurricular activities,” Simons said. “It was definitely a new kind of learning experience.”

Simons and the rest of her cohort are now moving on to their next learning experience, after graduating this December with a master of science in occupational therapy from West Coast University.

Among her MSOT cohort, Simons was singled out for individual praise after winning the award for academic performance. Classmate Amy Duong was presented with the dean’s award for outstanding student.

“I’m so honored to be part of such a bright, intelligent and loving group of people,” Duong said.
